After receiving a B.A. in French, Adrienne Stuckey worked as a summer camp counselor and early childhood instructional assistant before determining that she wanted to pursue a Master's degree and initial certification in teaching students with Learning Disabilities. She taught high school special education students with high-incidence disabilities for 12 years in the Atlanta area before earning her Ph.D. in Special Education in 2015 and transitioning to the university and teacher preparation. She moved to Cullowhee (and WCU) in 2015.
Dr. Stuckey enjoys preparing teacher candidates for licensure for K-12 teaching across all disciplines by teaching instructional methods for students with mild to moderate disabilities in inclusive general education settings.
Dr. Stuckey is interested in urban and rural children's language and reading development, methods of enhancing positive teacher-student interactions, pre-service teacher candidate development in Cultural Awareness and Culturally Responsive Teaching, and early career teacher mentorship.
