I am an associate professor in the Lynch School of Education at Boston College. Previously I was a third- and fourth-grade bilingual teacher and worked in district, state, and nonprofit settings on issues pertaining to bilingualism and literacy. My research is broadly focused on emergent bilingual learners from Spanish-speaking homes in K-8 settings. Within that context, my work targets language use and development, cross-linguistic relations, instructional interventions, and teacher practice. I've published many articles and book chapters, has developed language-based and reading curricula, and have worked in close collaboration with Boston-area schools facilitating the translation of research to practice.
