Interests and Expertise

My teaching and scholarship addresses the intersection between gender and what the educational profession terms, "behavior disorders." Specifically, I examine how ableism within the education profession perpetuates gender stereotypes of what is considered "good" and "bad" behavior. I am further involved in efforts that address LGBT bullying, teachers' awareness of mental health intervention needs for LGBT youth, gay-lesbian foster parenting, gender leadership within the education profession, and queer disability.
