Research Interests

My research interests include studying how adolescents with emotional/behavior disorders and those with language disorders can best learn in our secondary schools.  I'm particularly interested in refining teacher skills and instructional ability to meet these students' needs.  A related research interest for me is teacher training and professional development of school personnel.
