Get to Know Me

Something that excites me in my field...
is the opportunity to educate the future workforce.

Something I learned in my research this year that surprised me...
I was reaffirmed that an inclusive education is possible but it takes years to affect this through persistent, consistent efforts from multiple people and groups.

My favorite quote is...
"It is important not to underestimate how radical a call for inclusive pedagogy can be."
