About Me

vip-pic2I am a third year PhD candidate in Educational Research and Evaluation at Virginia Tech. I am pursuing this education as the start of a new stage of my career after retiring from teaching high school physics for 30 years. I am seeking improved methods to measure what students think and to create feedback which can guide instruction by both teachers and students.

Currently, I work in the Office of Academic Programs for the School of Education on accreditation. I also work on the School to Prison Pipeline Project in the School of Education as a Research Assistant.
