Research Focus

Kerri studies how teachers enact new pedagogies to support ELLs and speakers of minoritized languages. As a learning scientist and former teacher, she studies how to rethink traditional “spray-and-pray” models of professional learning through design-based implementation research. In her spare time, she (quietly) roots for the Nebraska Cornhuskers and rides her bicycle.
