Member Spotlight - June 2015
Elizabeth King, winner of one of this year's Kappa Omicron Nu doctoral fellowships, is pursuing her doctorate degree in Human Development and Family Studies at The University of North Carolina Greensboro. Her goal as a scholar is to teach and mentor future early childhood educators, and to serve as an advocate for children and teachers through research in early childhood education and service to her university and community. Elizabeth's dissertation research focuses on teachers' discussions of emotions in toddler classrooms and toddlers' social emotional competence.
Additionally, Elizabeth's work has focused on teacher preparation and professional development, specifically concentrating on preparing teachers to discuss diversity and social issues in early childhood education classrooms, as well as the importance of teachers' work environments.
