Curriculum Vitae

Professor and Associate Dean

Educational Policy and Leadership

Leigh van den Kieboom, Ph.D. Marquette University, is a mathematics teacher educator and Associate Dean of the College of Education. Her research focuses on designing learning experiences that engage pre-service mathematics teachers in developing the knowledge needed for teaching while learning about and enacting the practices involved in high-quality instruction. Central to this effort is understanding the work entailed in teaching mathematics in ways that support all students, regardless of race, class, gender, or identity in learning mathematics with understanding. In keeping with the teacher-scholar model at Marquette University, Leigh’s teaching and research mutually inform each other. Leigh uses her research to better prepare pre-service teachers to implement ambitious instruction, high-quality teaching in mathematics classrooms that emphasizes student sense making, maximizes student engagement, builds on the assets students bring with them to school, and maintains high standards for academic rigor.
