Congratulations to Brittany Hott, incoming Junior Co-Chair, and Angela Shelton, incoming Junior Representative!!! We are pleased to welcome Brittany and Angela to the graduate student committee for 2011-2012. A little introduction is in order ... : )

Brittany Hott
Incoming GSC Div C Junior Co-Chair (2011-2012)
George Mason University
College of Education and Human Development

Brittany began her career in education as a middle school special education teacher.  She earned a Master's of Education in Special Education with a concentration in emotional and behavioral disabilities from Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond Virginia.  Brittany has worked in the juvenile justice system as a special education coordinator and most recently served as an instructional specialist for middle schools in a large urban public school division. She completed an Educational Specialist degree in School Administration and Supervision from the University of Virginia, Charlottesville, Virginia and is currently studying special education as doctoral student in the College of Education and Human Development at George Mason University, Fairfax, Virginia.

Brittany's research interests include curriculum-based measures and teacher-directed strategies within the context of a three-tier intervention framework for middle school mathematics.  Her primary research interest involves how opportunities for overt responding impact participation and performance of students with internalizing and externalizing behaviors in mathematics.  Brittany recently presented papers on student-directed strategies at the Teacher Educators for Children with Behavioral Disorders (TECBD) conference in Tempe, Arizona and the International Council for Learning Disabilities annual meeting in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.  She is currently teaching courses in behavior management and collaborative models in special education.  Brittany hopes to foster relationships with fellow graduate students and enhance opportunities for student participation within Division C.
