Carrie Ashcraft is a Lecturer in the Utah Valley University School of Education; previously she taught in the UVU Department of English and Literature. Prior to employment at UVU, she spent over 15 years teaching English, Math and History in 6th through12th grade classrooms. Currently, she works with pre-service educators and enjoys engaging students in developing a reflective teaching practice that promotes equity and Social Emotional Learning (SEL) within student-centered classrooms.

With her family, she has lived in Massachusetts, Germany, Idaho, and Utah. After moving to Utah in 2002, she earned an M.Ed. at Westminster College. Currently she is completing a Ph.D. program at Utah State University; her research focus is eliminating ‘gate-keeping’ strategies that keep minority and marginalized students from accessing high-level learning. Carrie has a love for teaching and working with student teachers as they prepare to enter the profession. Along with her husband and family, she enjoys attending football games at Boise State University- where many family members have graduated over the years, organizing travel opportunities and experiences, studying Don Quixote, and hiking the Oregon Coast.
