Vernita Adkins

Pepperdine University
Adjunct Professor
Greater Los Angeles Area
My professional experience includes over twenty-seven (27) years in public education as a special education teacher and school administrator. In completing my dissertation at Pepperdine University, I determined my dissertation topic to be, "Effective Practices Of High School Principals' Leadership In Developing Traditionally Underrepresented Students' Higher Education and Future Career Readiness," as a foundation in addressing student needs in support of their K-12 education towards success in their college and career aspirations. My future research endeavors, inclusive of these student populations: English language learners, students designated as receiving special education services and foster youth, will emphasize students' development of the skills required towards college and career success and life-long learning (heutagogy) in the current global environment.
