I am an Associate Professor of Curriculum and Instruction at Kennesaw State University's
Bagwell College of Education. My scholarship examines citizenship education in culturally
diverse democracies from global and comparative perspectives. I am interested specifically
in intersections of global citizenship and education, which stems from my experience
working as an ESOL teacher in a refugee camp in the Philippines, and as a primary
teacher in internationals schools in Manila, Bangkok, and Hong Kong. Prior to joining
KSU, I held appointments as assistant professor at the National Institute of Education
(NIE Singapore) and the Education University of Hong Kong (formerly Hong Kong Institute
