Dr. Jamie Arkin has been a public school teacher and administrator in both Florida and Virginia for over 30 years. A career English teacher, she also served in numerous teacher leadership capacities at the school, district and state level with expertise in writing curriculum, teaching writing, developing valid measurement instruments, and implementing emerging technologies into instruction.
As an assistant principal and then an associate principal at the high school level, Dr. Arkin focused on creating strong parent-school bonds and shepherding students from vulnerable school populations. During her career, she also held short-term central office roles in staff development, residency compliance and attendance variances.
Her doctoral work at the College of William and Mary focused on K-12 administration and supervision. She developed an interest in violence directed towards educators, and her dissertation, completed in 1999, was a content analysis of state laws regarding teacher assault.
She has continually taught in the Ed.D. program since 2011 and took on the newly-created program coordinator role in May 2018.
