What attracted you to UW-Madison? There were many reasons! I was drawn to UW–Madison because of its excellent reputation in research and teaching. I was also particularly excited about working with the new Center for Research on Early Childhood Education. What was your first visit to campus like? My sister attended UW for undergrad, so I think my first visit to campus was to help her move into her freshman dorm room many years ago. More recently, my campus interview more visit was in January, so it was both lovely and snowy! I really enjoyed connecting with my future colleagues, learning about opportunities for research and community work in Madison, and seeing the campus covered in snow. What’s one thing you hope students who take a class with you will come away with? I hope that students in my classes will come away with the understanding that young children are powerful and capable of much more than we often think. Children’s power and agency — their ability to make things happen in their worlds — are major themes that we explore in my classes. Is there a way your field of study can help the world endure and recover from the COVID-19 pandemic that has affected the health, finances, and lifestyle of so many? Within the field of early literacy, I’m particularly interested in young children’s writing.
