Bio: Asking questions about education has been a major part of my life since 2005 when I started teaching court-ordered juveniles in an Adult/Basic Education program in West Tennessee. From there, I spent some time working in a local school district with high rates of poverty and low rates of literacy to search for any missing links. When I needed answers to my questions of how to better help my students, I spent some time pursuing an Ed.D. in Curriculum and Instruction Leadership with a concentration in Reading/Literacy, but how the questions only grew from there! Currently, I spend a lot of time asking questions to help prepare pre-service and in-service teachers for their roles in education. I also conduct research and collaborate with other teachers to work towards addressing some of the very questions where my journey first began. Some of those topics include educational reform, creativity in education, and social justice/equity movements.
