About

IMG_2515Welcome!  I started this blog in 2013 as a way to discuss the field of Comparative and International Education, navigating academia, and, well, life in general.

Why am I writing on Comparative Education?  After graduating from college, I joined Teach For America and moved to Louisiana to teach first grade for two years.  I then moved to Morocco and taught second grade at a private school.  With my background in Political Science and History, I became interested in the ways in which culture, politics, language and education overlapped and influenced each other.  Following two years in Morocco, I earned my M.A. in International Studies at the University of Oregon.

Currently, I am a Ph.D. candidate.  My primary research interests are in Childhood Studies, Immigration, Education History, Multilingual Education, Comparative Education, and Elementary and Secondary Education.  I am also working on a large evaluation project in East Africa.  My dissertation ideas are currently taking shape, but I am sure that I will continue to share more as I continue on in my program.

I welcome your comments and thoughts.  If you have additional articles or ideas to share or would like to contact me, please feel free to do so here.  Thank you for reading!
