I’m an Associate Teaching Professor of Clinical Education at the University of Southern California’s Rossier School of Education. My research focuses on best practices for postsecondary instruction with technology, andragogical practices in synchronous virtual classrooms, and the intersection of learning theory and technology. My primary appointment is in the Master of Arts in Teaching program, delivered online. Prior to becoming a professor, I was a classroom teacher in a high needs school in Los Angeles, a private educational administrator, a community preschool teacher, and a behavior interventionist. I hold a B.S. in Elementary Education from The University of Central Florida, and a M.S.Ed. in Educational Psychology and Instructional Technology and an Ed.D. in Educational Leadership, with a focus in Educational Psychology, from the University of Southern California. I have been certified as a classroom teacher in FL, CA, and LA, and I hold administration and ELD certifications in California and Louisiana. I currently live in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina with my husband, my two children, and my 3 dogs.
