Courtney Rath's teaching and research focus on teacher education, specifically on preparing future teachers to teach towards social justice.  Her research focuses on the complexities of teaching practice and how best to communicate these to novice practitioners; currently she is working on a project about how white teaching candidates can sustain discomfort in order to develop more nuanced racial literacy.  She also researches the teaching performance assessment recently adopted by Oregon, edTPA.  Before coming to University of Oregon as a doctoral student, Courtney taught high school English for many years, and she spends her free time dancing, baking, reading, writing, and playing with the world's cutest miniature dachshund, Matilda.
