Research / Creativity Interest Area

My research interests include exploring the components of student success. Explicitly, what are the interpersonal attributes and external variables that contribute to achievement?   Instinctively I gravitate toward qualitative initiatives.  I enjoy the personal connection that accompanies hearing the unique narratives of individuals and communities facing divergent circumstances.  As a teacher I am inclined to promote student involvement in research as frequently as possible.
