Thomas Forget, Ph.D.

Associate Professor

I seek to understand educational effectiveness as related to culture and the effect of leadership on that dynamic of effectiveness and culture.  I have studied and experienced this dynamic at the PK-8, high school, and higher education levels. 

A current interest associated with the Farrington College’s educator preparation program is the effect of teacher morale on instructional effectiveness in the PK-12 setting, particularly in light of current social negativity regarding the teaching profession.
