Meet Professor Anita Bright

Anita Bright, PhD, is an assistant professor in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction in the Graduate School of Education. A National Board Certified Teacher with over 20 years of experience as a K-12 public school teacher, Dr. Bright is the ESOL program supervisor, and teaches courses in ESOL, social justice, mathematics education, and is a doctoral program cohort leader. Her primary research interests draw from critical theory and include explorations into the ways curricular materials may function as reproducers of culture, and the ways microaggression may influence students, their families, and the climate of educational settings. Her research also includes a focus on the ways preservice teachers conceptualize ideas of social justice, and explores the ways they use discourse to explain, defend and justify their thinking.
