The examples below are of my writing and research and interests through my graduate coursework in 2011.
Arts in Education Program Guide, Capstone Masters Project

In order to do this an understanding of accepted state agencies program evaluation methods are needed. Documents and literature that promote, educate and excite artists, teachers and administrators about the program are also necessary.
Adjunct Faculty: The Future of Higher Education
Abstract - Current research of the hiring practices of part-time faculty in higher education institutions show that adjunct professors will become more needed, influential and valued in the professional teaching career in the future. This statement is based on a literature review covering the past 30 years of how and why adjunct faculty is hired and used in the United States’ higher educational system. Included in this paper are answers to questions: “What are the advantages and disadvantages of adjunct faculty?”, “Why are adjunct faculty seen in such poor light?”, “What is being done about adjunct faculty?”, “How valuable will adjunct faculty be to institutions in the future?”, “How will technology affect adjunct faculty in the future?”, and “What leadership can I offer to adjunct faculty?”.
