Its been some time since my introductory post, but there is big news! I recently accepted an offer from the Center for Public Administration and Policy at Virginia Tech (Blacksburg, VA) for an Assistant Professor position. The job market was very intense, but I am very fortunate to receive an offer from a great school with proud progressive traditions and legacy. I’ll continue to focus on my research that examines the intersection of immigration policy and practive with educational outcomes for Latino youth, both for citizens and noncitizens. I’ll also look for ways to continue university oriented research to improve both student and organizational outcomes as well. It’ll be an interesting transition for sure, but I look forward to the new challenges and opportunities that await.
