Research Interests

My research interests focus primarily on prevention, intervention and special education supports in the schools.  More specifically, I have an interest in intensive behavioral interventions such as functional behavior analysis/behavior intervention plans and wraparound supports within a Multi-Tier Support System in the schools.  My previous research has also focused on School Psychologists as leaders in the schools and identity construction of students that have attended a bilingual immersion school.
