Love of learning and teaching knows no bounds

Karen Bromley’s love of learning is surpassed only by her love of teaching, as she helps teachers provide the best instruction to encourage and allow students to be successful learners and citizens of today’s world.

A distinguished teaching professor in the Graduate School of Education at Binghamton University, Karen Bromley is known as incredibly knowledgeable, available and respectful by her students, and as a leader and role model in reading and literacy education by her colleagues.

Bromley, who earned her master's in education from SUNY Potsdam and her doctorate in early childhood/elementary education and reading from the University of Maryland, is known as an expert in the fields of reading and literacy. Her current research focuses on the relationship between reading and writing, and classroom literacy assessment and instruction.

Recognized with the New York State Reading Association's Reading Educator Award and the Chancellor's Award for Excellence in Teaching, Bromley values connecting with students in the classroom. "I know I'll continue to try to listen to my students and be aware of new research in the field so I can continue to improve my teaching," she says.

As society and culture change, reading and literacy are exciting fields to be in, Bromley says. "Books and paper ... share the stage with reading in cyberspace and it's shifted how we become better readers," she added. "It's exciting. I'm becoming literate always."
