Director, Center for Research on Equity and Innovation
Stacey Caillier Ph.D. is Director of the Research Institute, where she supports research projects within and beyond the HTH schools, and a core faculty member in the HTH GSE. She has been with the GSE since its inception in 2006, previously serving as the Director of the Teacher Leadership M.Ed. program and Co-Director of Instructional Support for HTH schools. She is passionate about the potential for practice-oriented forms of research - like action research and improvement research - to transform schools by encouraging educators and students to explore their passions while working toward more equitable and engaging learning environments.
Prior to coming to High Tech High, she completed her doctorate at UC Davis in School Organization and Educational Policy. At her dissertation site, she collaborated with teachers to design and implement an action research project that led to school-wide reforms. As a graduate teaching fellow at UC Davis and an adjunct faculty member in Hamline University’s Graduate School of Education, Stacey taught courses on action research and socio-cultural issues in education, and mentored practicing teachers. She began her career as a high school physics and math teacher at a Portland, Oregon high school affiliated with the Coalition of Essential Schools. She later served as a teacher and science specialist in a California charter school. Stacey majored in physics and English at Willamette University, where she also earned a Master’s in Teaching and a secondary physics and math credential.
