Valerie Marsh, a graduate of the Warner School, is the assistant director for the University of Rochester’s Center for Urban Education Success (CUES), as well as a visiting assistant professor in Warner’s teacher preparation program for English education. Prior to starting this position, she taught graduate education courses, primarily in English education, and supervised pre-service teachers in the field. She began her career in Brookline, Massachusetts, teaching English Language Arts at the secondary level.
Marsh’s research interests explore best practices in urban education, leveraging and supporting the educational partnership organization (EPO) of the University of Rochester and East High School. Additionally, she researches adolescent new literacies, particularly the connections between online learning spaces and physical classroom spaces in an effort to make classrooms more inclusive and relevant to the values and priorities students experience in out-of-school spaces.
