Personal profile

Research Interests

Gloriana González's research focuses on problem-based instruction in mathematics classrooms. She is interested in examining teachers' decision-making when handling students' prior knowledge during problem-based lessons and the rationality underlying those decisions. She is currently investigating teachers’ perspectives about using visual arts contexts for geometry instruction. With the support of a CAREER grant by the National Science Foundation, she led a project that created a professional development model combining animations and video clubs within a Lesson Study cycle to promote teacher learning.

She was a middle and high school mathematics teacher in Massachusetts and Puerto Rico. She was a member of the editorial panel of the Mathematics Teacher Educator, and the chair of the panel in 2018-2019.

She is the co-PI of a project funded by the National Science Foundation with the University of Puerto Rico for improving undergraduate mathematics teacher education through Lesson Study.
