Dr. Parkhouse’s research focuses on critical citizenship education and how teacher education can support teachers’ use of culturally sustaining, empowering, and socio-politically conscious practices. She also studies immigration and education and teaching for global awareness. These research interests stem from her experiences teaching high school social studies, English as a Second Language, and literature in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic and the Washington Heights neighborhood of New York City.

She currently teaches methods for teaching multilingual learners, curriculum development, and teacher education and professional development.
