Previous Professional Development engagements:
Hollyhock Fellowship for Teachers
As an instructional coach and lead instructor for the Stanford Hollyhock Fellowship for Teachers I've been able to blend my classroom teaching experience and my research to help early career teachers in high needs schools from all across the United States.
Through content development, leadership training and relationship building, we were reinvigorated to return to the classroom with a burst of new energy and an abundance of research-based knowledge.

Stanford Summer Teaching Institute
Each summer the Center to Support Excellence in Teaching (CSET) hosts the Stanford Summer Teaching Institute. For the past two summers I have been invited to provide a week-long professional development for teachers drawing on my research related to the teaching of English Language Arts in culturally and linguistically diverse classrooms.
Collaborating with teachers to applying knowledge gained from research toward the goal of improved student learning remains the focus of my work.
