Education Research Activist

DePaul University working to help pre-service teachers learn to adapt to
meet the needs of their students.
The @LetsTokEdResearch channel on
TikTok was started as community building endeavor intended to make education research accessible to #Teachersoftiktok, families, and learners of all kinds. It quickly became a passion project and space for research and discourse around issues in education leading to conference presentations and collaborative projects with fellow creators in education.
