Ed.D., Teaching and Leadership, Syracuse University
M.S., Education, Syracuse University
B.S., English, Syracuse University
I completed my education at Syracuse University receiving a B.S. in English (1970), a M.S. in Education (1974) and an Ed.D. in Teaching and Leadership (2000). My area of research has been focused on organization theory, change process, and leadership theory as it applies to public school organizations. I have worked with researchers and practitioners in a number of public schools across the state of New York. My practical experience includes elementary teacher, secondary English teacher, assistant high school principal, Middle School Principal, Director of Special Programs and Services, and Superintendent of Schools in three different school districts in New York State. I have served as an adjunct professor in the Education Department at Utica College and at SUNY Cortland. At Cazenovia College I am responsible for student teaching placements in the public schools along with teaching methods courses and related fieldwork components. I continue to consult with public schools districts in Upstate New York.
