Holly is interested in researching digital equity and how bilingual teachers, students, and communities use digital tools to critically engage with the world around them.

Before pursuing graduate studies, Holly was a dual language (Spanish/English) teacher in Round Rock ISD. During her time in the classroom, she was inspired by how students used new technologies to express themselves and question the world. However, she also became aware of the potential of technology to reproduce systemic inequities in schools. She hopes her research will contribute to more equitable, relevant, and critical digital spaces for our students and communities.
