Dr. Hillary Parkhouse began her career in education as a high school history and literature teacher in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic from 2004-05. She then taught social studies and ESL in a New York City public high school for five years before beginning the Ph.D. program in culture, curriculum, and change at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Parkhouse’s current research focuses on critical citizenship education in urban classrooms, youth activism, and the teaching practices that promote political efficacy. Her other areas of research include immigration and education, global education and teaching for social justice. She teaches secondary school curriculum for pre-service teachers.
