Dr. Black is a former 4th-grade teacher who taught in Arizona and California. She has taught in rural, urban, and suburban settings. Her work has been primarily in settings where her students spoke many different languages.

Dr. Black seeks to foster a love of teaching that utilizes the diversity of our students as a resource and to plan our lessons based on the capabilities of our students rather than perceived deficits. Her research and teaching are unified by her aim to reduce to the number of inappropriate referrals of Emergent Bilingual students (also called English Language Learners) to Special Education testing.
