Special guests will be joining Maria and Kim throughout the hour, including:
Dr. Mark Greenberg's research interests include intervening in the developmental processes in risk and non-risk populations with a specific emphasis on aggression, violence, and externalizing disorders; promoting healthy social and emotional development through school-based prevention; the study of community partnerships and the diffusion of evidence-based programs; the study of contemplative practices and mindfulness interventions; the interface of neuroscience, molecular genetics and prevention.
Dr. Nancy Markowitz' work has concentrated on pre-service teacher preparation, developing the state-of-the-art credential program known as the TE Collaborative Intern Program, and university/district partnerships that span pre-service and beginning teacher professional development. She is Director of the new Center for Reaching and Teaching the Whole Child at SJSU that focuses on the social-emotional dimension of learning and its relationship to academic achievement.
Dr. Patricia Jennings is particularly focused on applying recent findings on mindfulness-based approaches to reducing teacher and student stress and improving teaching and learning environments. She is committed to applying this research to improve pre-service teacher education at the pre-K and elementary levels.
Dr. Shannon Wanless' research focuses on helping early childhood educators use social-emotional teaching practices and race-related teaching practices to improve children's sense of psychological safety to learn at school. Her research lab focuses on implementation science, social-emotional learning, and increasing teacher capacity to help children of all races and cultural backgrounds to engage in learning.
