Lynsey Gibbons

Assistant Professor

Boston University Wheelock College of Education & Human Development

Dr. Lynsey Gibbons’ research focuses on understanding teacher learning, and considering how schools can be reorganized to support teachers’ learning and development of high quality instructional practices that are productive for student learning. Central to this effort is unpacking the roles of instructional leaders in supporting teachers’ development, and considering how to assist instructional leaders to organize their schools for learning. This work is informed by a vision of teaching mathematics that includes eliciting and building on children’s thinking as they attempt to solve challenging tasks, while holding children accountable to learning goals. She collaborates with a team of mathematics educators, practitioners, and leaders to design professional learning experiences for elementary mathematics teachers that support vibrant intellectual communities for both students and teachers.

Prior to joining Boston University, Dr. Gibbons was a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Washington in Seattle, WA. She worked as a math coach and upper elementary teacher in Lexington, KY.
