I am currently an Associate Professor of Mathematics Education in the Department of Mathematics and Science Education at the University of Georgia. As a former preschool teacher, I teach undergraduate and master’s level courses for prospective elementary and middle school teachers, and doctoral courses in Critical Issues in Mathematics Education and Advanced Study of Teaching and Teacher Education. From 2011-13, I was a Professor-in-Residence and taught a methods course at Clarke Middle School as part of a Professional Development School (PDS) partnership with UGA and the Clarke County School District. In addition to my work as a mathematics teacher educator, I also provide professional development for PreK-8 teachers across the country. I currently coordinate the Grades PreK-2 strands of the NCTM “Connecting Number and Operations in the Classroom” Institute (2012-15). My research focuses on culture and equity in mathematics teacher education and collaborative planning in professional learning communities. I am currently the lead Editor for, Cases for teacher educators: Facilitating conversations about inequities in mathematics classrooms, an upcoming book for the AMTE Professional Book series. I regularly present at national and international conferences and have published my work in research and practitioner journals.
Dorothy will assume her place on the Board at the close of the 2015 Business meeting, which takes place at the Annual Conference on February 14, 2015. She will serve as a Member-at-Large for a 3-year term, 2015-2018. Please join the current AMTE Board members in welcoming Dorothy to this AMTE leadership position.
