about me


I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Special, Education, Foundations, ad Research at East Carolina University. My scholarship is rooted in Critical Race Theory (CRT). I draw on CRT and critical and performance ethnography methodologies to highlight the interplay between structural racism and teacher practices and to promote teacher agency. I also serve as an equity coach for schools in North Carolina. Please see the links above for more on my publications, courses, and other activities. To inquire about my services as an Equity Coach, please email me at blaisdell@hotmail.com.
