She currently teaches literacy pedagogy to preservice teachers and facilitates professional development for K-12 teachers in literacy methods, curriculum design, project-based learning, and discussion approaches.  Kristin studies classroom talk and discussion.

Her research has appeared in publications such as Language Arts, Language and Education, chapters in edited texts, and the National Reading Conference Yearbook. Kristin presents her work at professional education conferences at state and national levels.


“When talk and learning goals align in the classroom, something very magical happens.”—Ian Wilkinson and Kristin Bourdage
