Her academic interests center on policies and interventions that are intended to help provide effective teachers to the students who need them most. This has led to a focus on the identification, selection, development, and retention of teachers who have positive impacts on student achievement. Specific topics include teacher preparation, high quality professional development, mentoring and peer collaboration, efforts to use measures of effectiveness formatively to improve practice, policies that target district responses to teachers and schools based on measures of effectiveness, and incentives for the strongest teachers to work with the most disadvantaged populations.
