Learning is a complex process in which the mind actively constructs meaning through experience. Teachers need to be conscious of their studentsí individual approaches to learning, knowledgeable about the background knowledge each student brings to the learning experience and adept at creating learning situations in which learners are able to think actively and reflectively.

She presents regularly at the North Dakota Reading Association and conducts in-services for local and state school districts. She is active on the Minot State University campus as well and currently serves on the statewide Reading Association and is chair of the University Diversity Committee.
