Presently my work is with both in-service and pre-service STEM teachers. My teaching focuses on providing them with content rich courses that challenge paradigms and ask them to change their frame of reference. My research interests lie in how altering teachers’ frameworks can improve the overall learning experience of students in the K-12 system with regards to STEM subjects. I have an abiding interest in the incorporation of the Arts into this study as well and as such also do research on what is known as STEAM.
