    Using ethnographic research methodology, I examine the ways that race, class, gender, and sexuality position individuals within the sociocultural context of schools.  Critical, feminist, and postmodern theory provide frameworks for me to understand the discourse and practices that preserve or disrupt inequity in schooling.  I  am particularly interested in the role of  teachers in disrupting oppressive discourse and practice and working toward emancipatory teaching.  To this end, I utilize participatory action research in my work with teachers to critically examine their practice.
