Research Interests
Drawing on Latino Critical theory, post-structural, post-modern and anti-oppressive education theory, I see myself helping new teachers asking questions about how the educational system helps in developing a social order, which is not always fair or democratic for all groups within society. In order to do this, new teachers have to be able to recognize social discourses, ideologies, and those social structures that promote oppressive relationships within society. My research is centered on the influences of social and institutional contexts on teachers' practice as well as the role of curriculum and teaching in building a democratic society in the face of the antidemocratic structures within society that promote social injustice and intolerance.

Interventions Aimed At Reducing High-Risk Health Behaviors in Inner City Communities; Qualitative Research Design and Methodology RESEARCH EXPERIENCE Principal Investigator (03/2006-Present) NEIU Grow Your Own Teachers Program The Grow Our Own Teacher Program (GYO) establishes an initiative to encourage and support paraprofessionals, parents, and other active community members in becoming certified as teachers. GYO seeks to stimulate the development of consortia made up of an institution that prepare teachers (NEIU), a targeted school district (CPS), and a community organization (ACORN Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now). Working together, these entities are to identify paraeducators and parents who have been leaders in schools with hard-to-staff positions and provide these individuals with the financial and other support they will need to complete teacher preparation programs. The new teachers are then to be placed in positions in the targeted schools. Principal Investigator (01/2007-08/2008) CeaseFire Evaluation Evaluated the effectiveness of the Chicago Project for Violence Prevention CeaseFire program, a State of Illinois funded violence reduction initiative. The purpose of the study was to find out what main "stakeholders" of this violence reduction program like individuals who reside in CeaseFire’s service areas, faith leaders, victims of violence, elected officials and the police had to say about the program. The evaluation used qualitative techniques, in particular, an ethnographic/focused interview process. Principal Investigator (04/2004) for a study with Whitney Young High School Social Work Department, Chicago, Illinois. I am conducting a focus group study that is examining adolescent males’ perceptions of manhood. The purpose of the study is to collect data that will be used to develop a rite of passage program for at-risk male students at Whitney Young. The study involved 8 focus groups that included over 50 freshmen through senior male students. I am currently analyzing the data. Research Associate (2000-present) Institute for Research on Race and Public Policy Research. University of Illinois-Chicago. I conducted my dissertation research, an ethnographic/focused interview study of a cultural intervention designed to reduce risky behaviors among inner-city African American youth at the Institute for Research on Race and Public Policy Research. Having completed the study, my goal now is to further the study by placing the findings in the context of education policy and health disparities among African American youth. Research Assistant (1996-1997) on the Aban Aya Youth Project at the University Illinois-Chicago, Prevention Research Center. Research Project: to develop and then evaluate a school-based program designed to promote abstinence from sex, teach students how to avoid drugs and alcohol, and to teach them how to resolve conflicts non-violently.

Asa Phillip Randolph Magnet School (Chicago Public School). 1991-1998. As described above. Target Population-grades 1 through 8.

Hirsch Metropolitan High School (Chicago Public School). 1996-1998. As a member of the Hirsch Metropolitan High School Probation Team, I conducted a program for the most “at-risk” boys identified by the school Principal, Counselors and school Disciplinarian. These young men were identified to participate in this mentorship program due to problems with truancy, poor grades, gang-related activity and anti-social behavior. I started with a group of (15) boys in September 1996. By the time the school year ended, the group had mushroomed to (40) forty boys. By 1998, the group consisted of over 100 boys.

Tanner Elementary School (Chicago Public School). April 20th. Planned, implemented and conducted a rites of passage program for over (100) one hundred 4th, 5th, and 6th grade boys.

The program culminated with a school wide taste of Africa and two assemblies.

GRANTS

Principal Writer (January 2007) Black United Fund of Illinois’ (BUFI) Safety Net Works Grant.

Safety Net Works is an initiative comprised of State of Illinois agencies and community-based organizations formed to help alleviate violence and killing in communities in Illinois. BUFI is headquartered in the South Shore community of Chicago, one of the 17 Safety Net Work target communities. As the Principal Writer of the grant I developed the Coalition of Organizational, Neighborhood and Network Empowerment through Culture, Talent and Spirituality (CONNECTS @ South Shore), a youth violence prevention initiative designed to reduce violence among youth ages 12 to 24 in South Shore. The purpose of CONNECTS is to foster community partnerships through strong relations among the youths, families, schools, faith-based organizations, businesses, parks, elected officials and community-based institutions and the Chicago Police Department in South Shore. BUFI was awarded $320,000 grant to implement CONNECTS @ South Shore.

Principal Writer and Program Evaluator (March 2006) The Literacy, Employment and Self-Sufficiency Project (LES) LES seeks to provide literacy, employment and self-sufficiency programs to one hundred (100) “hard to reach” Chicago public housing residents who are significantly in need of workplace literacy and self awareness development. Funding- 150,000.

Co-Writer (March 2006) Grow Your Own Teachers Program. The Grow Our Own Teacher  program (GYO) establishes an initiative to encourage and support paraprofessionals, parents, and other active community members in becoming certified as teachers. GYO seeks to stimulate the development of consortia made up of an institution that prepare teachers (NEIU), a targeted school district (CPS), and a community organization (ACORN Association  of Community Organizations for Reform Now). Working together, these entities are to identify paraeducators and parents who have been leaders in schools with hard-to-staff positions and provide these individuals with the financial and other support they will need to complete teacher preparation programs. The new teachers are then to be placed in positions in the targeted schools. Funding-$40,000 Planning Grant.

Background

Gerardo Moreno is Professor of Special Education at Northeastern Illinois University, Chicago and serves as the Director of the William Itkin Children’s Service Center.

Dr. Moreno’s research and teaching focus on the development, delivery, and evaluation of special education services for children and youth with disabilities, particularly individuals identified with specific learning disabilities and/or emotional behavioral disorders. Through this scope, he examines the development and implementation of psychometric and curriculum-based assessments, best practices in academic interventions (e.g., Response to Intervention), and programming/interventions for individuals with emotional/behavioral disorders, particularly the use of the Functional Behavioral Assessment (FBA) and Positive Behavior Supports (PBS). Additionally, his research examines the impact of past and current educational practices on the quality of services for individuals from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and the development of cultural competency among pre-service and in-service educators.

Dr. Moreno completed his doctoral work in Special Education with a Focus on Emotional/Behavioral Disorders at the University of North Texas in Denton, Texas under the guidance of Dr. Lyndal M. Bullock. Prior to entering the field of higher education, he worked as a school counselor and special education classroom teacher in Texas public schools for over ten years.

Background

Dr. Colak is a native of Turkey where he received a B.S. in physics and gained experience as an elementary school teacher in grades 3-8. In 2002, Colak earned an M.Ed. in science education from the University of Missouri-Columbia, and in 2008 he earned a Ph.D. in science education from Indiana University Bloomington. At Northeastern, he will be teaching both elementary and secondary science education courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels. His philosophy of education is based on his belief that students learn science by investigation and by constructing their own knowledge base in conjunction with their daily life experiences. He hopes that he can instill in his students a strong feeling for teaching and learning about science, and that he can help them understand the nature of science so they can embed those concepts in their science teaching. In addition to his teaching, Dr. Colak plans to pursue research in which he will investigate both students’ and teachers’ nature of science views and personal epistemologies.

Background

Shirley J. Caruso earned her undergraduate and graduate degrees at Northeastern Illinois University. As an undergraduate, Shirley earned her Bachelor of Arts in the University Without Walls non-traditional degree program. The program incorporated many Human Resource Development (HRD) courses and helped Shirley reinforce her practical experiences in the field of HRD with theories and skills needed in today’s competitive workplace. Shirley continued her studies at Northeastern and earned a Master of Arts in HRD.

Upon graduating, she put her new talent into action by teaching as an adjunct professor in Northeastern’s HRD program, and opening WISE Training and Development Consultants (www.wisetraining.weebly.com), a Chicago-based Human Resource Development consultancy company that specializes in the design and development of customized training programs. Shirley also launched a website and is chief editor of www.EAdultEducation.org, a site that provides information on adult learning theories and research in relation to practice in the field of HRD.  Shirley has written over 200 articles on the implications of adult learning theories.

Shirley’s professional background includes over 15 years of experience in the practice of HRD.  She currently puts the HRD theories she writes about into practice by developing talented employees to help clients achieve real competitive advantages, designing and delivering highly effective training and development programs that enable participants to enhance their individual performance, supporting the learning goals of students by focusing on student learning outcomes, considering the needs and abilities of the students, becoming familiar with academic and social support, making reasonable provisions to accommodate individual differences, maintaining the academic integrity of Northeastern, and working in collaboration with faculty of all ranks and disciplines to promote educational innovation and the improvement of student learning.

Shirley also holds a variety of training and development affiliations and awards.  She is a member of the Chicagoland Chapter of the American Society for Training and Development (CCASTD) and Northeastern's HRD Student Association (https://www.facebook.com/groups/113122995372320/). She chaired the local site committee for the Midwest Research-to-Practice 2009 Conference in Adult, Continuing, Extension and Community Education and authored a paper entitled "Integrating Informal Workplace Learning Into The Workflow Through The Development Of Performance Support Tools" (http://wisetraining.weebly.com/uploads/1/1/8/5/11852861/integrating.pdf)  published in the Midwest Research-to-Practice 2009 Conference Proceedings.  In 2010, she received an Award of Merit in Recognition of Outstanding Research from Northeastern’s 18th Annual Research and Creative Activities Symposium.  In 2009, she was a Deb Colky Workplace Learning and Performance Award finalist and received Outstanding Service to the Community, Outstanding Piece of Academic Work, and Overall Integration of Conceptual and Experiential Competencies Awards from NEIU.   Shirley has also been recognized by Northeastern for her valuable contributions to the Graduate College Seminar Series.

In January 2014, Shirley was awarded a Ed.D scholarship from The Boyer Graduate School of Education at William Howard Taft University. She anticipates completion of her doctoral degree in May 2016.

Background

Dr. Pulido’s research is interdisciplinary and works to expand the scholarly literature in the fields of education, youth culture, and Latina/o Studies by examining how youth navigate schooling through their particular social and cultural lenses. Her research provides an alternative perspective to much of the recent literature on urban schooling framed by a discourse surrounding testing, standardization of curriculum, and accountability and instead, focuses on developing an understandings of how youths’ multi-layered identities converge and divergewith the processes of schooling in ways that affect academic achievement.
