ABOUT ME

I am a professor in the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies, specializing in educational leadership.  I received my Ph.D. from the University of Chicago and have previously taught at Bank Street College of Education (NYC), Louisiana State University, University of Utah, and Florida State University.  In the last two universities, I also served as department chair.  My research focuses on work socialization of school principals and other leaders, school reform, and leadership.  I am currently involved in comparative studies of school leaders in England and the U.S. My research is published in such journals as Educational Administration Quarterly, Journal of School Leadership, Educational Leadership, Educational Management Administration and Leadership (UK), and the Journal of Educational Administration (Australia). I have co-authored books on leadership, mentoring, and the principalship and am co-editor of the Handbook of Research on Leadership Education and the International Handbook on the Preparation and Development of School Leaders.  I am past president of the University Council for Educational Administration and founding editor of the Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership.
