Presidential Citations by AERA President Deborah Loewenberg Ball


Sharon Feiman-Nemser
Brandeis University
Dr. sharoN FeiMaN-NeMser. This citation recognizes Dr. Feiman-Nemser for her development of and leadership in innovative teacher education programs and her distinguished research on teacher preparation and learning. Through her scholarship and practice, she has forged new conceptual frameworks in core areas of teacher preparation—teacher curriculum and pedagogy, mentoring and new teacher induction, Jewish education, learning to teach, professional development of teachers—that are now central to the field. The indelible mark of her perspective, research, and mentorship is evident in the scholars and practitioners she has advised and worked with across her distinguished career, many of whom have gone on to be leaders and to conduct their own groundbreaking research. Her visionary focus on teacher learning and practice, coupled with her remarkable generosity in working with emerging scholars, have transformed the field of teacher education.

Carol D. Lee
Northwestern University
Dr. carol D. lee. This citation recognizes Dr. Lee for her groundbreaking research on cultural supports for learning that bridge and also contribute to building education practice, theory, and research. Her influential scholarship on cultural modeling deeply connects race, teaching practice, disciplinary knowledge and activity, and the cultural resources of urban Black youth. Dr. Lee is imaginative and bold, crossing boundaries, building connections, and challenging constraints, as she weaves together learning theory and cultural perspectives on language and literacy with her core commitment to the flourishing of Black children. She is fundamentally a teacher—an English language arts teacher at the high school and community college levels, an elementary teacher, and a university professor—and her generosity as a scholar has inspired so many in the field. Dr. Lee’s visionary work shows how fundamental research can be inseparable from the challenges and hopes of practice.
