Maureen E. Latham, Ed.D., is an educator who believes all students are capable of learning at high levels, and that it is the responsibility and moral obligation for all educators to ensure student learning is the focus of their work.

Her avocation for student learning is derived from her experience as a classroom teacher and administrator in K-12 public schools. Her early career was spent in an urban, high poverty school district where basic safety to and from school was as important as the learning that took place in the classroom walls. Her calling was deepened with experience in rural school districts with limited opportunities for student access to high quality instruction and programs.

Latham brings this experience to the School of Education as a superintendent in residence to offer current and emerging school leaders insight and expertise to strengthen their professional and personal leadership skills. In collaboration with the School of Education faculty and staff, she offers the practitioner-scholar context to the Department of Educational Leadership and advises doctoral students through the completion of their dissertation.
