Each child has the potential to make robust gains in mathematics understanding (4)_edited.

My Research

seeks to support students' fraction understanding, overall mathematics success, and

STEM interest. I strive for my research and its implications for educational practice to reach wide audiences including teachers and parents, and as such, my program is also focused on exploring innovative research dissemination strategies.
