Biography

Lorelei Coddington has served in numerous roles such as classroom teacher, researcher, and curriculum consultant, which have enabled her to support teacher development through coursework taught at Biola University, Claremont Graduate University and Whittier College. She received her Doctor of Education from Claremont Graduate University in 2014. Coddington’s research examines teacher knowledge, reflection and videos in professional development. This fall, her book, “Teaching Outside the Box: Technology-Infused Math Instruction,” will be published with Kendall/Hunt.
