Jill Ewing Flynn is an Associate Professor who teaches undergraduate methods courses and coordinates student teaching for the English Education Program at the University of Delaware. After graduating with a B.A. in English and History from Duke University, she taught middle and high school English in a variety of settings—public and private, urban and suburban schools—for nine years. She holds permanent secondary teaching certification in New York state. She earned a master's degree in Secondary English Education from Pace University (NY) and a Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction: Literacy Education from the University of Minnesota. She has worked with teacher candidates for over a decade.
Flynn's research and teaching interests center on critical multicultural education, primarily on how teachers can engage with students in productive discussions about race. A qualitative researcher, she has co-edited a volume on hidden and suppressed narratives of women's experiences in academia (published 2018). For the last three years, she has also engaged with two colleagues in a two-part research project examining (1) student response to equity-oriented teacher preparation curriculum and (2) self-reflection and peer feedback in developing and teaching pedagogy focused on racial literacy in undergraduate methods courses.
