Courtne Thomas

Ms. Thomas will conduct action research by examining gender isolation and academic performance.  To address the lack of focus that is often observed in pubescent students, Ms. Thomas will attempt to prove that separate learning environments for male and female sixth through eighth grade students will improve their state assessment scores in language arts.  Upon completing the research, Ms. Thomas will share her findings with the East Orange Education Association Professional Development Committee members, at team and staff meetings with colleagues, and at workshops and conferences with other educators.
