Dr. Klassen Endrizzi, Ph.D., University of Arizona, 1993, teaches graduate and undergraduate courses in literacy education. Her collaborative research with classroom teachers, graduate students, and preservice teachers centers on family-school partnerships and multicultural children's literature. Her recent book with the National Council of Teachers of English enables teachers to explore ways of valuing students' literacy ways of knowing outside of school while also finding avenues for inviting parents to understand their classroom literacy practices.
