- Charlotte Sharpe
CHARLOTTE J. SHARPE is a postdoctoral fellow in elementary mathematics education at Syracuse University. Her research focuses on how teachers come to develop ambitious instructional practices in both teacher education and school settings, and how the vision and practice of others in these settings shapes teachers’ opportunities to learn. Recent publications include: Dunlap, C., Webster, M., Jackson, K., & Cobb, P. (2015). Schooling leaders on the common core. Available at www.kappancommoncore.org.
