Professor of Biology Education CV
Department of Ecology, Evolution, and Organismal Biology (EEOB)
College of Science and Mathematics
At Kennesaw State University, I direct science teacher education for undergraudate biology, chemistry and physics majors in the College of Science and Mathematics. I conduct much of my work in public schools with science teachers at all grade levels, but mostly high school. My research and practitioner publications emerge from service to middle and high schools science teachers via co-teaching roles that inform my teaching practice and sustain an awareness of life in secondary science classrooms. Science teacher education, science teacher mentoring, and inquiry learning have been my longstanding research interests. New interests include language/literacy in science education and citizen science/youth activism in biology education. With teachers, I strive to cultivate more caring, communal and educative relationships with all learners, using science and nature as our context.
