Dr. Robles-Goodwin's research interests center on educational issues affecting English Language Learners, especially Latino students and their families: young children, biliteracy issues, and diversity teaching and training. She is also interested in the administrative experiences of Latinas in public schools. Her current research centers on the experiences (teaching and cultural) of Latino educators recruited to the US to work with students in dual language classrooms in the United States.
