Vicki Nishioka is a senior researcher at Education Northwest. She has extensive experience in evaluation and technical assistance focusing on strengthening teacher-student relationships, equity in school discipline, social and emotional learning and bullying and harassment. Her Regional Educational Laboratory (REL) Northwest work includes conducting research on ways to reform school discipline policies. She also leads the development of professional learning materials that help educators design and implement policies and practices that lead to welcoming, inclusive school communities.
I feel privileged to work at Education Northwest because of our commitment to work alongside school and community partners to increase our collective knowledge, improve educational practices, and, most important, help students achieve success.
