Prior to joining the university, I was a middle and high school teacher. I absolutely LOVE teaching and working with all students, but in particular, students who have been labeled as “at-risk”.

I am Dr. Brenda Morton, an Associate Professor in teacher preparation, a Fulbright Scholar, and researcher. Prior to joining the university, I was a middle and high school teacher. I absolutely LOVE teaching and working with all students, but in particular, students who have been labeled as “at-risk”. You know the students I am talking about; those who almost dare you to make education interesting, or worth their time! During my last year of teaching at the high school, I had two students who were in foster care. Getting to know the students and the situation that ended up with removal from their home opened my eyes to an invisible population of students. A year later, we became certified foster parents, and our family grew from four to eight when we welcomed four siblings to our family.
