About Me

Hello to everyone! I’m Serena Morales, Ph.D.

My teaching adventures started with middle school language arts and dabbled around education settings for a couple of decades before finding home in higher education in 2015. Currently, I work with pre-service teachers, teach secondary methods courses, and coordinate a Master in Teaching program. I am obsessed with instructional design and the way students are impacted as humans and learners through the choices teachers make around learning and classroom culture.

For years, I’ve collected ideas, examples, responses to challenges. I’ve consumed and created. This website is a landing page for the content and questions I still have–will always have!–about how we learn, why we teach, and what to do about it.
