Teaching Interests

My teaching interests are focused on the social foundations of education and helping students to examine the relationship between societies, cultures, and educational policy and practice.

Research Interests

Using critical discourse analysis, critical race theory, and TribalCrit frameworks, my research examines historical and contemporary issues in American Indian K-12 and higher education, issues of epistemology and expertise in teacher education and professional development, and the impacts of race, geography, language, and religion on academic achievement.
