    Dr. Cox brings extensive experience as a former elementary school teacher, full-time tenured Associate Professor at a liberal arts college and a facilitator of non-profit work. Over three decades, she has sustained involvement in extensive clinical and grant work, taught as an adjunct for several colleges and universities, and served as a visiting Associate Professor at a state university. She has been intentionally and passionately researching and teaching culturally responsive pedagogy for over 20 years since publishing her dissertation focused on culturally responsive instruction in elementary classrooms.

    She received her preparation at a large state school but has worked for more than 20 years with liberal arts institutions because she believes in a sustained commitment to each student she teaches. She cherishes the experience of working with undergraduate and graduate students in the college classroom and in clinical placement. She is the proud parent of two adult children who graduated from small liberal arts colleges.

    The bulk of her higher education experience is from Georgetown College. She began as an Assistant Professor in 2007, became an Associate Professor, served as Department Chair, and taught an overload of courses for most of her 11 years there. She has experience teaching foundational and methods courses for all levels and every subject area except math.

    For many years, Dr. Cox has worked and conducted research with a cadre of 4 colleagues to focus on issues of equity and culturally responsive instruction. This group has presented extensively and currently has a contract for a manuscript with Brill Publishing. The group has developed a method they hope will help educators examine and expand their lens to address the insidious inequity in schools for marginalized students. Dr. Cox brings tremendous experience all the while maintaining an attitude of wonder for learning and evolution as an educator.

    Dr. Cox lives in the rural part of Fayette County and is a co-owner of a historic former schoolhouse (Athens Schoolhouse) that is being revitalized as a multi-purpose community and retail facility. She and her husband spend the summer raising produce, working on the Athens Schoolhouse and maintaining their property. She also leads weekly yoga practices and is an amateur artist.
