Congratulations, Dr. Stafford
Math Professor Stephanie Stafford received the doctoral degree (Ed.D) in Educational Leadership from Northern Kentucky University on Saturday, May 11.
Stephanie's dissertation examined instructional practices and dispositional traits of instructors that students perceive as essential for success in developmental math.
The research included focus groups and surveys, and led to identification of top traits and teaching approaches that contribute to student success.
Celebrating with Dr. Stafford in the photo above are her husband, Andy, and children (from left) Harrison, AJ, and Ellie.
