About Stephanie Abraham, Ph.D.
Dr. Stephanie Abraham is an Associate Professor of Language and Literacy Education at Rowan University in New Jersey. Her research and pedagogical interests focus on the documentation of the rich language and literacy practices of racialized, emergent bilinguals, as well as helping their teachers develop high quality, critical pedagogies. She is the principal investigator of the Spencer Foundation-funded project, Translanguaging as Resistance and Restoration in a Community-Based Writing Center. Her scholarship has been published in Radical Teacher, the Journal of Education Policy, and Teaching and Teacher Education.
