As a teacher and scholar I am centrally interested in democracy and education. My work involves a critique of dominant narratives that exclude grassroots voices, individuate social actors, and fracture communities of conscience. My highest aspiration as a scholar and educator is to reinscribe public education as a site for culturally responsive, community-oriented, democratic learning.
