Curriculum Vitae

Research interests

Amy Roth McDuffie conducts research on the professional development of prospective and practicing teachers in mathematics education. Specifically, she focuses on supporting teachers learning in and from practice in the areas of teachers’ use of curriculum resources and culturally relevant pedagogies as part of developing equitable instructional practices.

Teaching/professional interests

Dr. Roth McDuffie regularly teaches methods of teaching mathematics courses for undergraduate prospective teachers. She also teaches masters and doctoral level courses in mathematics education for our EdM program and for our PhD in Mathematics and Science Education.
