Work as a Professor Researcher

After working in the K-12 world I decided I wanted to influence others. I began to teach teachers about curriculum, instruction, and the integration of technology. We formed a STEM group on campus and eventually got National Science Grants at NMSU supporting the math and literacy outreach we had developed over 15 years. This is a picture of myself and Dr. Karen Trujillo, the project manager, demonstrating math games at an NSF annual conference.

Over 15 years I worked to increase research activities and grants at NMSU. From 2004 to 2012 I was also a research dean. All of my grants over the last 30 years involved partnerships between higher education and K-12 or K-20 educational agencies.
