The culmination of this work is the recently published My Kids Can: Making Math Accessible to All Learners, K-5 (Heinemann 2009), an edited collection of video and written cases written with elementary mathematics teachers. She also was a contributing editor to the Working with the Range of Learners: Classroom Cases in the Investigations in Number, Data, and Space(TERC) 2nd edition.

Her work has also focused on supporting the mathematics learning of students with special needs and young learners. Since 2006, she has been the research coordinator and principal liaison for the project Scaling Up TRIAD: Teaching Early Mathematics for Understanding with Trajectories and Technologies, funded by the U.S. Department of Education’s Institute of Education Sciences (IES) as part of the IERI program, with Dr. Clements and Dr. Sarama. In 2004-05, she collaborated with Dr. Doug Clarke from Australian Catholic University, producing videotapes of the Early Numeracy Research Project Interview.
