About the authors

Rebecca Lowenhaupt is an associate professor of educational leadership and higher education at Boston College’s Lynch School of Education and Human Development. She studies the role that school principals—and other school and district leaders—play in supporting culturally diverse students. Drawing on multiple methods of empirical research, including survey methods, social network analysis, and qualitative analysis, her work investigates educational leadership and policy in the context of immigration, with a focus on new immigrant destinations. At Boston College, she teaches aspiring school and district leaders about teacher supervision, organizational theory, and research methods. She is a co-author of The Instructional Leader’s Guide to Implementing the K–8 Science Practices (ASCD, 2021).
