Dr. Feistman Discusses Working as a Teacher and Working in Applied Research

Dr. Richard Feistman currently works as the National Director of Evaluation for an organization called Teach Plus. He wasn’t even sure if he wanted to attend college--be sure to listen until the end to hear that story. However, he went on to earn a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Columbia University, a master’s degree in Social Studies Education from Teachers College, Columbia University, and a Ph.D. in Family Studies with a specialization in Human Rights Leadership from the University of Missouri. In this episode, he discusses his experiences teaching middle school, teaching abroad, and working in applied research to benefit educators throughout the country. As is true for all interviewees on this podcast, Dr. Feistman's views are his own as a private citizen and do not reflect the views of his current, former, or future employers.
