Dr. Vincent Genareo

Vincent Genareo is an Assistant Professor of Educational Psychology in the Teacher Education Department at Salisbury University. He earned his Ph.D. in Teaching and Learning from the University of North Dakota, where he also taught. His dissertation examined the effects of an oil boom on rural communities and schools.

Vincent was a postdoctoral research associate at Iowa State University, where he was a program evaluator for K-12 and higher education programs. He has expertise in research design, survey design, and focus group interviews. Vincent has also taught undergraduate, master’s, and doctoral-level courses in educational psychology, classroom management, assessment, and research methods. He enjoys collaborating and discussing research design and analysis, regardless of the methodology.

Vincent is highly active in research and publication. In 2014, he was named an emerging scholar by the Association of Teacher Educators, and has received several conference research honors and a competitive internal research grant. His primary research interests include pedagogy in teacher education programs related to teaching confidence and content acquisition. He also researches the predictive ability of interests and confidence on STEM career choices, and algebra progress monitoring in middle and high school. He looks for new, more efficient ways to measure how students conceptualize their worlds. He has published in journals such as Teaching Exceptional Children, Natural Sciences Education, The Rural Educator, and the Journal of Rural and Community Development.

He also presents his work extensively. Since 2015, Vincent has presented research 18 times at national conferences, including six presentations at the American Educational Research Association (AERA), three at the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) conference, and two at the American Evaluation Association.

Vincent is thrilled to be at Salisbury University and enjoys working with students, faculty, staff, and schools.
