Stacey Brockman is a doctoral student in educational studies and an IES predoctoral fellow at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. She studies the effect of educational programs and practices on students’ academic and social-emotional growth, and on the equality of student outcomes. She is also interested in teacher education and development, with a particular focus on improving teacher preparation and teaching quality in schools that serve historically marginalized students. Stacey earned both a bachelor of science and master of science in industrial and labor relations from Cornell University, and a master of arts in education from Stanford University. Before beginning her PhD program, Stacey was a high school intervention specialist in the San Francisco Bay Area. In that role, she developed and evaluated academic interventions for students who were off-track from graduation. She also taught high school history for five years.
