Research Interests:

My research interests focus on teacher education, especially the assessment of teacher education programs. I am also interested in assessing the effectiveness of youth activity and physical education programs. I regularly present at national conferences, and have published my work in the Journal of Teaching in Physical Education, Quest, Teaching and Teacher Education, Journal of Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance, and Strategies.

Another area of interest is the application of sport and exercise psychology principles to the teaching of physical education. I recently published a book in which I describe theories and research on sport psychology topics that have application to physical education, and provide specific ways that physical education teachers can apply psychological principles to the teaching of physical education.
