Biography / Academic Interests :
As a scholar my work is informed by critical race and critical multicultural theory, womanist and feminist theory, critical multiculturalism, and sociocultural theory. My research interests reflect critical pedagogical approaches to literacy and academic achievement for linguistically and racially diverse students with a particular focus on urban settings.
