Julianne Mori started conducting research in her first year at Boise State, and over the years, has involved herself in projects that have been presented around the world. It changed how she sees scholarship and her chosen profession as a teacher.
At first, she didn’t understand the relationship between research and instruction. Through self-study with her peers and mentors’ help, she learned research methods, communications skills, decision making, and data analysis. It wasn’t long before she learned how to pass on the information and instruct.
During her time at Boise State, Mori’s work has been published in peer-reviewed journals, and she has delivered presentations as far away as Hawaii, and participated in more than half a dozen conferences on education. Her interests have included mentor relationships, academic identity, learning in different environments and teaching assessments.
Other projects include helping develop the Undergraduate Collaborative for Research in Equity and Access in Teaching, service in the Near Peer program, and leadership through the Teacher Education Ambassadors.
Mori graduates with a Bachelor of Art in Elementary Education and a math endorsement and will teach in an Idaho grade school. However, her studies will continue, and she hopes to pursue a master’s degree and eventually a Ph.D.
