Corey Drake serves as director of teacher education. Her work focuses on the preparation of elementary teachers to teach mathematics in diverse contexts. Her current research includes studies of pre-service elementary teachers’ learning from and about the use of mathematics curriculum materials. She also conducts a multi-university investigation of the ways in which elementary mathematics methods courses can be redesigned to support pre-service teachers in learning to integrate children’s mathematical thinking with children’s home and community-based mathematical understandings.
