Educational Leadership; Special Education Methods
My research focuses on four main areas: (a) educational leadership and organizational innovation, (b) experiential learning practices to prepare teachers for a career as special educators, (c) high impact and evidence based interventions regarding literacy skills (i.e., writing, reading, and math) of students with high-incidence disabilities, and (d) contributing to the research base on interprofessional learning(IPE), with culturally responsive/international educational practices both here and abroad.
