I am currently working with Dr. Jim Elicker on the Infant-Toddler Specialists of Indiana (ITSI) professional development network providing research-based resources and an annual training institute for professionals who work with infants, toddlers, and their families. I am also working with Dr. Jennifer Dobbs-Oates on a study that examines preschool teachers' beliefs about math and children's math outcomes.
