My research and teaching interests include (1) exploring dynamics in early-career practitioners' and undergraduate and graduate students' experiences as they relate to self-efficacy and belongingness within the field of education; (2) examining how teacher preparation influences teacher candidates' and early-career teachers' self-efficacy beliefs; (3) implementing interdisciplinary literacy practices to facilitate learning among content area preservice teachers.
