Gladys Krause, Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor of Mathematics Education at William & Mary. Her research centers on teacher knowledge and children's mathematical thinking, and how these two areas interact in multilingual and multicultural classrooms. She continues to expand on this work, extending it to work with bilingual parents and communities seeking a more equitable mathematics pedagogy. Dr. Krause also works on the creation of teacher and student assessments that involve articulating the knowledge to be assessed, identifying the kinds of evidence that demonstrate this knowledge, and developing and refining potential items to elicit this evidence.
