Johana is a Fulbright Scholar and mathematics educator from Honduras. She is a full-time Graduate student in the Mathematics & Science Education Doctorate Program at Washington State University, Pullman. Mathematics has led Johana’s academic career. She is currently working on a research project analyzing district-wide lesson study data that supported an elementary mathematics curriculum adoption.
Prior to beginning her doctoral studies, Johana pursued a B.Ed. in Mathematics at the National Teaching University in Honduras and continued her graduate studies at University College Cork, Ireland, with a master’s in applied mathematics. She has worked as a bilingual (English/Spanish) mathematics teacher in K-12 and college levels. Johana has decided to become a mathematics teacher educator to create and improve innovative ideas for teaching and learning mathematics. Her research interests focus on three areas (1) teacher education, professional learning, and/or development, (2) mathematical modeling, and (3) language and culture in mathematics.
