Research Interests:

​Two research strands, teacher development (including my own) and classroom research guide my past and current research interests.

I am interested in questions that arise in my classroom at the Schulich School of Education as teacher candidates embark on this journey called teaching. I am also interested in what it means in both theoretical and practical terms, for my colleagues and me to be teacher educators in a university. Finally, I am interested in current classroom practice; in particular, in literacy teaching and learning, and how theory-into-practice and practice-into-theory connections find their ways into the schools.

Specific research endeavours include:​Evaluation projects for The Learning Partnership focusing on early learning and the Welcome to Kindergarten initiative in the North Bay area.

Classroom research for the Ministry of Education and local school boards, including a two-year study of digital storytelling in a junior level classroom.

Exploration of creative expression, such as storytelling, drama, and poetry as ways of both knowing and expressing knowledge. Past projects include investigating the connections between storytelling and story writing in the elementary classroom, as well as oral language strategies that enhance literacy learning. Finally: writing about my own development as a teacher educator, a co-researcher, and a colleague along with other teacher educators.
