She leads a Master of Teaching cohort at Ryerson Elementary School focused on Social Justice and Eco-Justice Education, and coordinates a formal collaboration between OISE and the TDSB's EcoSchools Program focused on Environmental Education. She is Co-Chair of the ESE-TE Standing Committee of EECOM, a national network of education faculty focused on improving the integration of ESE into teacher education across Canada.

Her teaching centres on art education, environmental education, qualitative research, and teaching methods, while her research focuses on developing teachers' knowledge and skills in environmental literacy and environmental art education.
