WRITING in EDUCATION:
I’ve written books and articles for foundations, government agencies, and academic journals about culture and education, education of the gifted, issues relating to school facilities, and
ways in which schools and communities can work together. My dissertation, Working Memory: the influence of culture on aspirations, won the 1998 dissertation award from the National
Rural Education Association.

ways to utilize school facilities. I’ve also worked with teams on projects including Schools for Successful Communities: An Element of Smart Growth for the US Environmental Protection
