F. Camilla Quarterman, Ph.D.

Adjunct Faculty,
Department of Leadership and Administration

Dr. Camilla Quarterman has served as an educator for 21 years. As a teacher, graduation coach, and administrator of Saturday Academy, she believes effective teaching can be identified in many ways. However, building relationships with students has been researched and proven to have a positive effect on student learning. As a result, she wants to be known by her students as a teacher who cares.

Since President Clinton declared an end to social promotion and the Bush administration initiated the No Child Left Behind Act, grade retention has become a highly discussed topic among educational leaders. As a response to this debate, schools nationwide have had to examine and implement retention policies. Dr. Quarterman has done extensive research on the effects of grade retention and the importance of teachers in student achievement.

Dr. Quarterman is honored to be called “Mom” to five adult children and three school-aged children. Mothers play a vital role in the role of a child’s education, so she is joining currently with practitioners exploring how to involve socially disadvantaged parents in their children’s education.
