I am teacher and researcher in the area of educational assessment, critical mathematics education, and community-based teaching and learning. I began my teaching career as an elementary school generalist, and have since taught in a rural intermediate school in New Zealand, high schools in Vancouver and London, and a middle school for gifted students in Calgary.
In addition to researching and teaching, I have worked as a consultant with provincial, international (PISA), and national (PCAP) mathematics assessment programs, as well as international evaluation initiatives in Asia and the Caribbean.
I am currently involved in teacher education initiatives at Memorial University. My research focuses on how holistic learning can inform assessment practices and teaching and learning in the 21st century.
