Meet Amber Beisly!

Amber is a PhD candidate in Instructional Leadership and Academic Curriculum. She plans to graduate in the Spring of 2020. Here's a bit about Amber in her own words:

What is your dream job?

This is an impossible question to answer! I have never been able to answer the question about what I want to be when I grow up. When I was in elementary school, I loved to write stories and dig in the dirt to see what was hiding.  As I have gone through school, I am fascinated by research that uncovers what is beneath the surface. After I graduate, my hope is that I am able to be in a job where I can write books and do research, although maybe not so much about dirt.

What is your favorite book?

I have so many answers to this question! As a former teacher and parent, my favorite book is The Pidgeon Finds a Hot Dog by Mo Willems. It is incredibly funny for both children and adults. My favorite book for adults is Savage Inequalities by Johnathan Kozol. It is the first book that opened my eyes to how differently schools can operate. My favorite book as a teacher is Young Mathematicians at Work: Constructing Number Sense by Catherine Twomey Fosnot. This book helped me understand math and how to teach children in a way that will help them understand it and see it as a creative, relevant content area. Finally, my favorite book as a student/new reasearcher is Naked Statistics by Charles Wheelan. It explains statistics concepts in a conceptual way. I have read it numerous times because I learn something new each time!

If you were Director of the Schusterman Library for a day, what would you do?

I love Halloween and all things spooky. If I would director, I would turn the library into a haunted library! I would invite brave souls, young and old, to tour the haunted library. With the help of the librarians, students could walk through the spooky study rooms, the conference room of terror or the zombie zone on the second floor. After successfully completing the tour of the library, patrons could eat some spooky treats.

How do you contribue to the OU-Tulsa community?

As a student researcher, my work focuses on experiences related to preservice teachers. Along with my professors, we have explored topics like preservice teacher pedagogical content knowledge, math anxiety, and use of technology with Dual Language Learners. My hope is that I can work with preservice teachers to present practical, research-based practices that will improve preservice teachers’ knowledge and beliefs as well as improve outcomes for the students in the Tulsa community.

As a student, I am usually pretty focused on getting my assignments done for class. I am always looking for more ways I can contribute to the community.
