Research Interest

My research interest surrounds relationship skill building and multi-generational processes (family development). I am fascinated by how individuals learn to build and develop relationships and the influences our families have in the development of who we are and what we do as grown, mature individuals. My past work includes working with junior high school and secondary scholars in their social and emotional development. My current work involves research through emotional intelligence being a predictor value in the discrepancy that may exist for individuals actual versus ideal teaching self-efficacy.
