Profile: Linsay DeMartino
I am an Assistant Professor in the Educational Administration and Foundations Department at Illinois State University. As a former P-12 educational practitioner in Tucson, Arizona, I served as a special education teacher, inclusion specialist, special education department chair, and as an instructional data and intervention administrative coordinator. My current research examines transformative practices, collaborative community engagement, and justice in schools. I am particularly interested in administrative practices grounded in just schooling and contextual alternatives rather than “best practices” and educational trends. Relatedly, I teach coursework on leadership for diverse learners, community relations seminar, and equitable human resources administration. Finally, I hope to spend my afternoons with a Pembroke Welsh Corgi in the near future.
