Paige Bray
Teaching Focus

Assistant Professor Paige Bray's teaching expertise includes research design, leadership, planning, and collaborative approaches to working with communities, schools, and families. Bray is the academic advisor and program coordinator for the graduate early childhood programs.  She teaches early childhood courses including K-3 Integrated Curriculum Course (undergraduate and graduate), Working with Families and Community Agencies (undergraduate and graduate), and Student Teaching Seminars and Portfolio Assessment, including Student Work Sample.

Professional Interests

Bray's research interests focus on teacher inquiry and the use of meta-cognitive tools and parallel work on parent inquiry and parent integration of information in meaningful ways. Her methodological choices of collaborative, participatory research reflect a long held value of practitioner knowledge and commitment to mutual use and benefit - research with, not on, collaborators. In addition, Bray has spent the past decade engaging in phenomenological, qualitative interviewing of women who are veteran early childhood teachers of color as their perspective, professional discernment, and earned wisdom are placeholders of possibility and a window to our educational and social history that risk being lost.  Bray integrates her research, theory, and practice through professional development opportunities, research dissemination and service to the University and local/state-wide communities.
