My background is working with individuals with autism spectrum disorders and attention deficit disorders, I continue to work both in the field with new teachers and well as address the role of technology in supporting both students and teachers in the classroom environment. My research has also focused on the role of simulation in developing novice teachers. This research has looked at combining traditional teach pedagogy with the use of avatar technology to provide new alternative certification teachers and teacher candidates with realistic student simulations for the purpose of skill development and self-reflection.
