The Educational Studies Department is pleased to announce the recent hire of Professor Jeffrey Snyder.
Professor Snyder is a historian of education who studies the twentieth-century United States. His research explores how schools have served as key sites for political, cultural and intellectual struggles over race, freedom and our national history. A Carleton alumnus, he studied Psychology and Educational Studies at the College. He holds an EdM in Learning and Teaching from the Harvard Graduate School of Education and a PhD in the History of Education from New York University. Jeffrey is an experienced classroom teacher, having taught ESOL to students of all ages and ability levels in the Czech Republic, France, China, India, Nepal and the United States. He is looking forward to teaching Introduction to Educational Studies as well as courses focusing on multicultural education and educational policy and reform.
Look for an official "welcome" event for Professor Snyder this fall!
