Bilingualism, ELL factors, Socioeconomic and Social Biases, Achievement Gap

Gabby is a first-year Master’s student in the ADP program working in Dr. Winsler’s lab. She graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2019 with a B.S. in Psychology and a B.S. in Biology. With a Spanish minor and a strong background in education, Gabby is interested in addressing the question of bilingualism in schools and the language acquisition process for ELL students. She is also interested in the related issues that affect bilingualism and ELL students, including socioeconomic background and social biases. Ultimately, Gabby hopes to pursue a Ph.D. in a related ADP field and potentially work to develop strategies that address the achievement gap many ELL students face.
