Background Narrative

Julie Kalnin is an Associate Professor at the University of Portland’s School of Education. She completed her PhD (2000) in Literacy, Language, and Culture at University of California at Berkeley.

Her own research focuses on teacher change and effective professional development across the career span; as a result, she has carried out applied research and program evaluation projects in partnership with schools, districts, a department of education, and, most recently a national environmental education organization.
