My Research

My research agenda is dedicated to improving English language literacy and learning around the world! My main research interest is in all types of content-based language teaching including CLIL, EMI, and all the other acronyms that describe learning content through L2 English. Along with CLIL, I am interested in literacy development of English Language Learners, especially writing development.

My Education

I hold a Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction from Texas A&M University and Master's in Education with an emphasis on international literacy from Sam Houston State University.
My Bachelor's degree is in Music with an emphasis in music education from the University of Houston (Go Coogs!).

What am I Working On?
