Research interests

I serve as the Frances S. and Arthur L. Wallace Professor and Director of the School of Education. I earned my Doctor of Education degree in Educational Administration from the University of Missouri at Columbia. Prior to entering the professorate, I served as a middle level teacher, high school assistant principal, and middle level principal in the state of Missouri. My research encompasses P-12 educational leadership and strategies that promote equity and access. Research themes include:

  • School and district leaders' practices in support of students' college and career readiness, including career pathways, career academies, cross-sector collaboration, data use, and distributed leadership
  • School improvement, teacher supervision, and evaluation
  • Leadership preparation program quality and staffing, including characteristics of tenure-line and non-tenure-line faculty
  • Mentoring of faculty and graduate students
