Associate Professor, Teacher Education
Department Chair, Teacher Education

My research focuses on the literacy/biliteracy practices of immigrant and transfronterizo/a youth and adults in and across multiple contexts. These contexts are both institutional, including communities and schools, and geographical, with a focus on Mexico and the US-Mexico border. Specifically, my research draws on sociocultural and critical perspectives on literacy to explore the everyday ways in which participants understand and use literacy in schools, communities, and civil society.
