Introduction: 

 
I have a long-standing interest in the history of teacher education and have recently completed a history of the Curry School of Education, The Curry School of Education at the University of Virginia, 1905-2005: Preparing Men and Women for leadership in Scientific Educational Work. Additionally, I am interested in the ways in which preservice students can positively impact the learning of the students they work with in their early field placements and have designed several research projects that focus on this area.

Beginning in 2009, I instituted an international teaching student teaching placement at the University of Cambridge. England.  This program takes place during the fall semester and provides elementary preservice students with the opportunity to become visiting members Homerton College at Cambridge while they complete teaching assignments in the city of Cambridge state schools.
