Namulundah Florence's love of teaching is inseparable from her personal, academic and cultural pursuits within and beyond the academy. She teaches because she loves learning and strives for a better self and society. She holds students to high standards and works with them to meet and/or exceed stipulated expectations. Working with diverse students exposes her to multiple perspectives and challenges at undergraduate and graduate levels of teacher preparation, including: Social Foundations of Education at the Undergraduate and Graduate Level; Diversity and the Inclusive Classroom; Integrative and Multidisciplinary Teaching and Learning; and Seminar in Education Research Methods. These courses foster a commitment to ongoing reflection in both Florence and the teacher candidates. Her research focuses on how ongoing conceptions of self and society drive the education agenda--what is taught, how students learn and who succeeds. Democracy requires greater participation and engagement.
