On this episode, Katie is joined by Deborah Loewenberg Ball, the William H. Payne Collegiate Professor of education at the University of Michigan, an Arthur F. Thurnau Professor, and the director of TeachingWorks. She taught elementary school for more than 15 years, and continues to teach mathematics to elementary students every summer. Ball studies the practice of teaching, seeking to identify how its power can be leveraged to disrupt racism, marginalization, and inequity. Much of her research focuses on elementary mathematics as a critical context for understanding teaching practice, examining the endemic challenges of working across difference, and the relational, communicative, and content-understanding entailments of that work. Her current work centers on ways to improve the quality of beginning teaching, particularly for children of color and low-income children.

Ball has authored or co-authored more than 150 publications and has lectured and made numerous major presentations around the world. She serves on the National Science Board and the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute Board of Trustees and is president of the American Educational Research Association. Ball has been elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the National Academy of Education, and is a fellow of the American Mathematical Society and the American Educational Research Association.

Since 2006, his research has focused on health and healthcare in Ethiopia. Since coming to OSU in 2012, Kenny has begun to work with colleagues in Oregon to understand the experiences of community health workers in our home state. In his free time, he surfs.
