Research Overview

As an elementary school teacher for students from low-income backgrounds, I am interested in any field research targeted at identifying best practices to support these students. I am especially interested in examining the use of restorative practices and how to provide students who have experienced trauma the most support resolving peer-to-peer conflicts in the classroom. Professionally, I am currently pursuing certification in Remedial Reading and would also be interested in exploring topics in literacy or discourse. During my master’s year at the University of Connecticut, my research project was examining how a discourse model of mathematics instruction impacted vocabulary use and grades on the Envisions unit tests for English Language Learner students.
