Jaime's research interests include teacher mentorship, beginning teacher induction and attrition, teacher professional learning and growth, as well as the theory and practice of arts-based research. She has a keen interest in research methodology of all kinds, and here at Werklund she is teaching the MEd step 3 research courses, and is one of the Academic Coordinators for the MEd Interdisciplinary research courses.
