As an educational psychologist, my teaching seeks to prepare undergraduate and graduate students to become reflective, responsive and resourceful professionals by connecting theoretical, scientific, and applied psychological knowledge with practice. My overarching teaching goals are: 1) to get my learners to understand the material at a deep conceptual level so that they may transfer and apply that knowledge to their own professional domains and 2) to teach my learners how to be self-regulated and meta-cognitive so that they will be equipped to be life-long learners.
My research aims to impact the examination of teacher quality and is broken down into three main areas: 1) student learning, motivation, and professional development, 2) the role of educational psychology in teacher education, and 3) program effectiveness with respect to teacher and student outcomes.
