Craig Willey is an Associate Professor of Mathematics Education and Teacher Education at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis. His research focuses on 1) supporting teachers to develop mathematics discourse communities with urban students, primarily Latinas/os; 2) understanding barriers and pathways to establishing equitable mathematics classrooms; 3) the development and incorporation of curricular features that provide bilingual learners better access to mathematical ideas and more opportunities to engage meaningfully; and 4) the limitations and affordances of a school-university partnership model of urban teacher development. Much of Dr. Willey's research has been, and continues to be, done in bilingual contexts, including Dual Language classrooms and schools. From 2006-2011, he was a Research Fellow with the Center for the Mathematics Education of Latinos/as (CEMELA) at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). Prior to joining CEMELA at UIC, Dr. Willey completed his undergraduate studies at Butler University and taught 6th, 7th, and 8th grade math in Denver Public Schools' Bilingual Education program.
