Dr. Aaron Campbell joined us in July, earning her doctorate in educational psychology with an emphasis in special education from the College of Education and Human Development at Texas A&M University (TAMU). She earned her master’s degree from North Carolina Central University and is currently an online instructor of the Teaching Special Education course at Baylor University.
Dr. Campbell instructed and led an undergraduate research team as a participant in the DeBakey Executive Research Leadership Program through the Aggie Research Program. She has focused her research on preventive and intervention strategies for children with and at risk for social, emotional, and behavior problems, specifically focusing on African American learners and improving academic outcomes. Her research is guided by her education, practicum, and work experience in clinical psychology.
She received the Catapult Grant Advancing Literacy in Texas, which funded her dissertation studies that focused on culturally adapting interventions to increase their effectiveness for African American learners.
Her long-term goal is to use her teaching and research to help those who endeavor to teach and support students with or at risk for social, emotional, and behavioral problems and seek to improve the academic outcomes of all learners. Her goal includes helping educators build cultural competence and providing students with the social, emotional, and behavioral skills necessary for success in the classroom and in life.
