Emily Galloway

Emily Phillips Galloway is an assistant professor at Vanderbilt University’s Peabody School of Education. Rooted in her experiences as a former middle school reading specialist, Phillips Galloway’s quantitative and qualitative research explores the relationships between academic language (AL) development and language expression and comprehension during middle childhood with a particular focus on linguistically- and culturally-minoritized learners. With a commitment to advancing research-practice partnerships, she has also worked with teachers, school leaders, and administrators in two of the largest urban districts in the United States. The fundamentals and lessons learned from this work are featured in a recent book entitled, Advanced Literacy Instruction in Linguistically Diverse Settings: A Guide for School Leaders (2016), co-authored with Nonie Lesaux and Sky Marietta.
