Lindsay Foreman-Murray, Ph.D.

she/her/hers, Assistant Professor


I began my work in education as a special education teacher and administrator in high schools in New Orleans. After leaving the classroom, I earned my Ph.D in Special Education from Vanderbilt University, researching math interventions for elementary age students and dropout prevention for secondary students.

I currently teach classes focused on assessment and building classroom spaces and teaching practices that support culturally and linguistically diverse learners. In my teaching I seek to develop engaged, reflective, culturally responsive, and dedicated educators.

My current research projects focus on dropout prevention and school engagement; teacher satisfaction and retention in schools; and school implementation of RTI and MTSS.
