University of North Florida
I am an associate professor in the College of Education at the University of North Florida, where I teach courses for preservice elementary and early childhood education majors. Prior to earning my Ph.D., I taught K-12 for 11 years.
My research interests include the relationship between spatial and temporal thinking in geoscience, learning about scale, K-12 geoscience education, preservice teacher education, and differentiating instruction.
I was the treasurer of the GER Division of NAGT from 2014-16.
