My teaching and research are grounded in my commitment to social change. My research focuses on how race, class, and gender shape educational opportunities. I have examined how students, parents, and teachers organize for educational justice. In an effort to bridge theory and practice, I collaborate with community organizations across Chicago. Most recently, I served as Co-Chair of the Board of Directors at the Chicago Freedom School.
