I’m teaching an ethics course that’s tailored to help school psychologists not only become aware of the ethics and regulations for practice and legislation pertaining to the field, but also to help them develop decision-making processes that align with their beliefs so that they can be effective and ethical practitioners.
To understand how students’ self-efficacy and regulation can be developed in public school settings to positively influence students’ mathematics achievement.
I believe that my research can impact the globe by supporting the math education of public school students who can then go on to positively contribute to a global society; therefore, I think a global emphasis starts with a strong local commitment.
From the public school students I have the opportunity to assess and counsel.
Those that involve working one-on-one with public school students.
I am currently working with the West Texas Middle School Math Partnership and Noyce Scholars. I am also invested in the development of the School Psychology Specialization for the Ph.D. in Educational Psychology, which is designed to create scholars who are also practitioners for our public schools.
Find a purpose and then act on it.
I have a bachelor's degree (B.A.) and master's degree (M.S.) both in psychology from Angelo State University and a doctorate (Ed.D.) in educational psychology from Texas Tech University. My hometown is Stafford, Kansas.
