Biography

Dr. Brianne Morettini received her Ph.D. from the University of Maryland in Teacher Education & Professional Development, her M.S.Ed. from the University of Pennsylvania in Teaching, Learning, & Curriculum, and her B.A. from the University of Richmond in Rhetoric and Communication Studies. Currently, her research interests pertain to the study of pre-service teachers' experiences in teacher education programs. In particular, she studies reasons why people decide to teach, the expectations that pre-service teachers have of the teaching profession, and the impact that clinical practice experiences have on teacher candidates' views of the teaching profession. Additionally, she has conducted research on STEM professionals' decisions to change careers and teach. She uses her research to develop responsive teaching techniques for undergraduates at Rowan University's College of Education. She currently teaches undergrad elementary courses, undergraduate early childhood courses, master's courses, and Ph.D. courses. Dr. Morettini serves on several dissertation committees and works closely with the Ph.D. in Education candidates. Dr. Morettini has also received external funding in the form of a multi-year grant to support beginning teachers.
