Dr. Amy Vujaklija received her Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Louisville in Kentucky with a focus on teacher leadership in professional learning. She teaches and advises pre-service teacher candidates in middle and secondary English education methods and instructs freshman composition writing studies courses. In her capacity as an Illinois Writing Project leadership team member, she, along with the IWP co-director, facilitated the writing and implementation of a National Writing Project College, Career, and Community Writers Program (C3WP) grant for two subsequent years. Dr. Vujaklija’s research interests use qualitative narrative inquiry to explore the lived experience of teacher leadership and student learning.
