Interests and Expertise

Math Education

My main focus is teaching future elementary teachers. My main goal is to get them to get a deep understanding of the mathematics that they are going to teach. My hope is that they also learn to enjoy mathematics as the delightful science/art that it is! My research interests have included pre-service teachers' beliefs about mathematics, problem solving at the elementary level, and how to increase college students' interest in the content of required mathematics classes.
