Dr. Pattie Noonan centers her work on providing and evaluating professional development related to improving education for all students. She holds a firm belief in the capacity of students with and without disabilities to achieve positive post-school outcomes through college and career readiness. Much of her work entails providing utilization-focused evaluation by working in close collaboration with State Departments of Education to create comprehensive evaluation plans and data systems. Her research often focuses on measuring collaboration, then using the results to improve teaming—a critical yet elusive component of educational improvement. To this end, she has published a book, many articles, and an integrated framework, all of which translate research results into practical applications. Throughout this process, Dr. Noonan continually improves her interactive, adaptive professional development practices in both virtual and face-to-face settings. She lives in Lawrence with her husband, John, with whom she enjoys remodeling old homes and exploring the world.
