I am dedicated to contributing to a society which honors the educational needs of all students. My research in mathematical proof began out of a recognition of the persistent struggles of mathematics majors, however, my determination to carry out this work led to a deeper understanding of various obstacles students of all ages face in their pursuit of learning. I recognize that educational struggles are home struggles. I recognize that educational struggles are societal struggles.
For these reasons, I have found the study of: (a) society, (b) power, and (c) how these ideas relate to and impact the individual mind, necessary to any and all study of teaching and learning. My work is inherently transdisciplinary and my ultimate goals lie in working toward a society which values all people within it.
