About the author:

I am interested in early language and literacy interventions that help close the achievement and word gap with young children. My research also focuses on teacher professional development.

What I want to achieve:

I would like my work to result in children in poverty having the same access to high quality education experiences as children in middle and high income homes. I would like my work to help all children to enter primary school with the skills needed to learn to read.
