I love working with college students. I particularly enjoy helping my students realize their goals and reach their full potential and watching them grow into responsible, independent caring leaders in the community. I am passionate about teaching and believe that students learn best when they are active agents in constructing their own knowledge. I enjoy working on a variety of projects and being a part of the great Student Services Center team! When not busy at work, I like writing and traveling anywhere new and exciting.
My research primarily focuses on children’s adjustment in elementary school and the social, contextual and personal factors that can influence their adjustment. Specifically, I study how the teacher-child relationship, child gender, ethnicity, and cultural values influence children’s school adjustment.
