Dr. Flower teaches courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels concerning Positive Behavior Support, classroom management, assessment, and behavioral disorders. Her primary research interests focus on the development and implementation of secondary level interventions to improve the academic, behavioral, and life outcomes of youth with or at-risk for Emotional/Behavioral Disorders, and challenging school behavior. This area of research involves three interrelated strands of inquiry including (a) the use of positive behavior support approaches to facilitate academic and behavioral change, (b) teacher preparation with regard to behavior management, and (c) academic interventions for youth with challenging behavior.
