AREAS OF RESEARCH SPECIALIZATION
My current professional interests focus on issues in school district human resources pertaining to pay, retention, and selection. Because each of these issues influence teacher performance, it is important to understand how administrative decision-making practices affect the quality of teaching performances as well as the adverse effect administrative practices has on student achievement. The quality of a school’s learning environment is highly impacted by items such as teacher/principal/superintendent assessment, employee selection, and employee job/pay satisfaction. It is for this particular reason I have chosen to research this area and extend our knowledge of human resource practices by investigating administrative and personnel issues.
