From 2017-2022, I have worked with a terrific group of educators as part of “SEE-TEL,” Strengthening Equity and Effectiveness for Teachers of English Learners – a National Professional Development project in Missouri, led by Dr. Kim Song at University of Missouri-St. Louis and funded by the US Department of Education.

From 2008-2013, at the University of Missouri-St. Louis, I was fortunate to work with the now Drs. Sarah Coppersmith, Jesus Diaz, Emily Hager, Angela Layton, and Sujin Kim, among other fabulous students! Our work mainly focused on research at language immersion schools and with immigrant communities in the Midwest.
