My research agenda is dedicated to improving English language learning outcomes around the world! In particular, I am interested in all types of content-based language teaching including CLIL, EMI, and all the other acronyms that describe learning content through L2 English. Though little is known about content-based language teaching at the moment, I hope my research can help add to our knowledge.
I earned my Bachelor's degree in Music with an emphasis in music education from the University of Houston (Go Coogs!). After becoming fascinated with language teaching, I completed a Master's in Education with an emphasis on international literacy from Sam Houston State University. Continuing in the field of English Language Teaching, I am now pursuing a Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction from Texas A&M University.
What am I Working On?
1. Predictors of Second Grade Writing
2. Cross-Linguistic Influences of English Instruction
