Congratulations to Doris Luft Baker, Ph.D., and Candace Walkington, Ph.D. upon receiving tenure. Both teach and conduct research in the Department of Teaching and Learning, and contribute to the Simmons School in strong ways.
Baker directs the Master of Bilingual Education program. She is engaged in developing and evaluating instructional tools and assessments in English and Spanish designed to improve and monitor the academic performance of English learners.
Walkington specializes in mathematics education. Her research examines how abstract mathematical ideas can become connected to students’ concrete, everyday experiences such that they become more understandable.
Please join the Simmons School in celebrating these newly tenured professors.
