Corinne Lardy

LARDY, Ph.D., Corinne is an assistant professor in the Teaching Credentials Department at California State University, Sacramento. Dr. Lardy holds a Ph.D. in Mathematics and Science Education from the University of California, San Diego and San Diego State University, an M.S. in Biological Sciences from San Jose State University, and a B.A. in Environmental Biology from Columbia University. On ASET, she helps to lead toolkit development and research, particularly in the context of teaching methods courses for pre-service secondary and elementary science teachers. Dr. Lardy has a great deal of experience in school settings as both a teacher and a researcher, spanning from K-12 through the university levels. As a teacher, she has taught multiple areas of science (earth science, biology, and chemistry) in the California public school system at the sixth grade and high school levels. She has also taught a variety of biology courses at the undergraduate level and science education courses for pre-service and in-service elementary and secondary teachers, as well as supervised secondary science student teachers. In addition, she has taught elementary students, pre-K to fifth grade, in informal contexts. Dr. Lardy’s current research focuses on pre-service science teachers’ (and their instructors’) developing pedagogical content knowledge and their associated teaching practices in the context of three-dimensional science teaching.
