I am an associate professor of Mathematics Education in the College of Education at GSU. I currently teach mathematics methods and content courses, and coordinate teacher candidates’ field practice. The most exciting part of working at GSU is the opportunity for me to empower our students, to help them explore their potentials, and to enhance their capacities in delivering high-quality mathematics instruction in K-8 classrooms.

My research engagement has been at the local, state, national, and international levels. I am interested in studying the impacts of professional development trainings on teachers’ teaching-efficacy beliefs of mathematics and the growth of preservice teachers’ mathematical content knowledge with a conceptual focus. Since joining the faculty at GSU in 2012, I have been the principal investigator on several projects aimed at improving the teaching quality of inservice teachers who particularly serve students in the southern regions of Chicago. I am also actively engaged in presenting and publishing research studies in the past few years. Since 2009, my research papers have been consistently selected to be presented at Annual Conferences of the American Educational Research Association (AERA), a highly-recognized organization in the field of education research.

I also dedicate myself to serving the local community, the university, and academic societies. In 2012, I assisted the Family Development Center (FDC) at GSU in improving their mathematics teaching and conducted workshops to math teachers of elementary and middle schools, such as the Metropolitan Mathematics Club of Chicago (MMC) in 2013 and 2014. In addition, I serve on a number of committees at the department, college, and university levels, including the Student Education Association, the Student Conduct Committee, the Tuition Waiver Review Committee, and the Faculty Senator Committee. The services we provide not only benefit ourselves but also the GSU community.
