Publication

I publish on arts education, agriculture education, and Native American culturally-appropriate representation in schools. I am currently working on two teacher resources. One resource is centered on Native American culturally-appropriate representations in the school curriculum. The second resource helps teachers integrate the arts and agriculture into their classrooms. Below are examples of my publications:
