I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Education. I also serve and the Associate Director for STEM Programs in Graduate Education. I have been a faculty member in the Department since 1999.  It goes without saying that I have a passion for teaching and learning.  I have been fortunate over the years to share this passion with my students. My research projects include: technological pedagogical content knowledge development, self-efficacy and its impacts on student achievement and teacher preparation, and oral histories of African American female athletes from the city of Philadelphia.
