For those who are curious, I am currently a professor of education at the University of South Florida, where I landed as an assistant professor in 1996. I teach a range of courses in social-science and humanities perspectives on education (generically called “social foundations”) at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, and I work in the Department of Psychological and Social Foundations, where I get to work with a bunch of very hard-working colleagues. I am currently in my third year as a department chair.
Because of my current responsibilities, I am avoiding most outside work except where it fits into common small-honorarium situations (reviewing book manuscripts and the like). I typically engage in a few such outside activities per year, based largely on my interest in the work.
Starting in July 2014, I will be the director of the Division of Educational Leadership and Innovation at Arizona State University’s Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College.
