Roni Jo Draper
I am a former mathematics and science teacher. I currently work to prepare teachers to work with middle school and high school students.
I teach courses in multicultural education, content-area literacy, STEM discourses, and research methodology.
I am interested in the texts and literacies used to participate in disciplinary communities (particularly in the various STEM disciplines and the arts). I am also interested in understanding how to prepare teachers to create safe and affirming spaces where all young people can learn, grow, and thrive.
