Academic Interest:

Dr. Sherese A. Mitchell was graduated from St.John’s Unviersity’s Instructional Leadership program with an Educational Doctorate. Her research incorporated Second-Grade students’ learning styles and tactual materials in Science. This research interest was manifested through several years as an Elementary School Educator. Dr. Mitchell was provided the opportunity to be employed at a Charter school, Parochial school, Public schools, hospital playroom, Sunday schools, and a Day Camp. Through her involvement with these agencies, this educator developed a fond interest of hands-on learning, curriculum development, constructivism, and behavior modification. These topics lend themselves to future projects, research, and articles. Besides these interests, Dr. Mitchell enjoys writing children’s books, poetry, and presenting information to the public. Having a place in the Hostos family has given this faculty great joy!
