I am currently in the Ed.D program a William Howard Taft. Are any members in, or graduates of this program?

Dear Colleague:

 

As an historian, social studies teacher, and school administrator, I am interested in the role of the teacher over time, as it is perceived by experienced teachers. My doctoral dissertation research focuses on the professional views and personal insights of teachers concerning the role of the teacher — both in terms of those elements that have remained constant across time and those that have been changing over the years.

I am seeking the views of in-service teachers with three or more years of experience.  If you are willing to share a few minutes of your valuable time, please complete and / or forward this brief, anonymous, online survey to any teacher colleagues who might be interested in participating. 

You can access the survey at http://teachers.netsurveys.us.

I will be very grateful for your participation in my dissertation research.  If you have any questions or would like to discuss the survey, please send me an email at joseph.lemke@edresearch.us.

Dear Colleague,

I am in the process of completing my dissertation for the doctorate of education and I am asking for your help.  My name is Joseph Coladonato, and I am teacher of history and English at the Willets Road School in East Williston.  
I know how precious our time is these days, but I was wondering if you would be willing to help me out by taking a very different type of survey and share it with your colleagues in yournetwork, home district, and other Listservs.
The study is going well but it is necessary to have a representative sample so that I can limit my sampling bias.

The survey could be completed by teachers and administrators on Long Island.  The link is below and includes all the details.  Please follow the directions carefully.  Thank you very much for considering this survey.

If you are willing to share this link with other teachers and administrators on Long Island, please copy and paste the following message in an email to distribute.

Dear Colleague,

My name is Joseph Coladonato, and I am currently a teacher in the East Williston Union Free School District. I am also a doctoral candidate at Long Island University's Post Campus. Currently, I am conducting a doctoral study called Attitudes about Second-Career Teachers: An Exploratory Q Study of School Administrators and Classroom Teachers.

I am respectfully requesting your help as a teacher or administrator on Long Island. My anonymous survey will take approximately 30 minutes to complete and may be done on any Internet accessible computer.  Participating in this survey is completely voluntary. 

Please click on the link, and follow the directions.

Sincerely,

Joseph Coladonato

I remember working on my dissertation for what seemed like unbelievable hours! The accomplishment was well worth it. I think focusing my "eyes on the prize" was the key.

I am in the doctoral program through St. Johns, and will defend this Thursday Sept. 22.   I agree with Jean.. the mentor can make/break the process for you.  Part of this process has been, for me, about the journey.  Focus and dedication to a personal goal through the struggles has been one of the most rewarding experiences for me.  Just remember as you go through it " if it were easy... everyone would do it.."  Feel free to contact me about the process.  Really... for me it was life changing.

This is an area I was also curious about, as I thought I had little experience, however, think about this...as a building principal, I am preparing budgets, organizing budget lines, auditing, collecting and managing funds etc. The principal is doing so much in terms of managing funds-it is quite amazing! We actually create our budget binder with requests for personnel, equipment etc. The point is, you may have done

some of this already, or you may be doing it now! My suggestion is to perhaps shadow a business official for a day or meet to discuss some of your interests. I have a feeling you know more than you think you do!! Plus, I do think the building business official is a critical position in any school district so read about the qualifications, and research the development of budget lines, and how to create a budget for a school district-since fiscal responsibility is critical, strong leaders will be needed-so research and talk to people-learn all you can---Lynnda

I have just completed my coursework and once I pass the comprehensive exam, I will begin my dissertation proposal. I recently realized that I have very little knowledge in regards to administrative fiscal responsibilities. While pursuing my SAS, the topic was merely touched upon. Has aynone had the same experience and what advice can you share with me in regards to gaining this very needed knowledge?
Comment by Dr. Lynnda M. Nadien on June 1, 2011 at 12:45pm

All doctoral candidates must work on a strong literature review! Be sure to read and research about your topic on a daily basis. Even 15 minutes per day in the early stages will assist you in staying on target. When you have completed your course work and are well into the research phase, you will be very happy that you have references in order and are able to frame your topic more specifically! Stay focused--Discuss-what is the real purpose of a strong literature review?

Friends,

 

Multiple independent variables are part of the doctoral degree process and outcome. In the view of this writer, the most critical independent variable is single-minded perseverance that focuses on the horizon line  and transcends all challenges, including accusations designed to weaken the sojurner. Perseverance is a bulldozer that clears the road. The doctoral journey is like running a marathon. We reach a wall and we press on beyond the wall.

 

Best,
Dr. Denise
