Andrea Maxie
INTRODUCTION

Since 1986, it has been my honor to serve on the faculty of the Charter College of
Education, at California State University, Los Angeles. Working with the outstanding
faculty of the Division of Curriculum and Instruction, and with exemplary educators in
the CSULA service area, I have helped to advance quality teaching and schooling
through teaching teachers, building teacher preparation programs, developing K-12
partnerships for teaching and student achievement, and conducting research on
teacher education. In addition, I have represented the interests of teacher
education before California's policy community, within the California State University
system, and within professional organizations. I am a past president of the California
Association of Colleges for Teacher Education, the immediate past president of the
California Council on Teacher Education, and a recipient of the CSULA
Distinguished Woman Award. I am a graduate of the University of Southern
California, and I hold a Ph.D. in Education, with a pecialization in Curriulum and the
Study of Schooling, from the University of California, Los Angeles.

TEACHING INTERESTS

I am an advocate for teaching as a profession and schooling as a high quality,
equitable and meaningful experience for all children. As such, I am particularly
interested in teacher leadership in curriculum policy and decision-making, teachers'
critical inquiry and reflection, and culturally relevant curriculum and instruction in
urban public schools. These interests pervade my courses in both the Single
Subject Credential program and the Master of Arts Degree in Education: Option in
Middle and Secondary Curriculum and Instruction. The courses I teach include,
Instructional Strategies in Secondary Teaching; Learning Environments and
Instruction in Secondary Schools; Inquiry into Teaching, Curriculum, and School
Culture; Principles and Practices of Curriculum Development; and Teaching in
Multicultural Middle and Secondary Classrooms. In addition to teaching courses, I
am the coordinator of the Single Subject Internship Credential program and the
director of the CSULA Teacher Recruitment Partnership Project.

RESEARCH INTERESTS

Beginning with a doctoral dissertation centered on student teaching in teacher
education, I have maintained research interests in the curriculum of teacher
education and in culturally relevant curriculum and instruction. Over the past
decade, I have made presentations of research and practice in these areas at the
national meetings of the American Educational Research Association, the American
Association of Colleges for Teacher Education, and the international meetings of
the International Council on the Education of Teachers. Recent publications include,
Developing blended teacher education programs: From policy to practice, published
in the Teacher Education Quarterly, and A perspective on the reform of teacher
education in California, published in Issues in Teacher Education. In addition to
recent publications, I have conducted recent research on teacher education in
collaboration with colleagues in the Division of Educational Foundations and the
Division of Curriculum and Instruction. The Effects of Impementing California's
Credentialing Reforms Pursuant to the Provisions of SB 2042 is a research effort
sponsored by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing.

Publisher’s Comments: Well, we said we wanted to portray role models, and Willie
“Ma” Gardner certainly rose to the occasion.  She pointed us to Andrea Maxie,
