Ed Psych PhD Candidate Wins Lodewick Award

Ed Psych PhD candidate Yorel Lashley was recently awarded the Philip Lodewick Award by the UW School of Education for his graduate work and pursuit of a career in schools serving predominantly minority populations.

IMG_0237His Master’s research study focused on creating a new classroom observation tool that reveals classroom learning culture, social-emotional learning routines and life-skill integration to be used with interviews of students and teachers about the classroom atmosphere and ideologies to provide useful feedback for teacher development and professional growth.
After earning his doctorate, Lashley plans to combine what he’s learned in Ed Psych with experience he already has in teacher training and teaching life skills through Drum Power to more than 3,000 students between New York City and Madison, Wisconsin.
“My work after graduate school will consist of using the research-based practices and my experience continuing to support learning for the students most in need by serving them directly as an educator, as well as by supporting the professional development of their teachers,” he says.
