Dr. Warnie James Richardson

Prior to arriving at Nipissing University in northern Ontario, Dr Richardson was a Special Education teacher/educational assessor for sixteen years, all in very hard to serve educational environments, both in Canada and the Caribbean. His doctoral work at the University of Toronto focused on the schooling experiences of juvenile delinquents.

Prof. Michael Parr

Michael Parr currently teaches in the Faculty of Education at Nipissing University and brings with him considerable experience working with students at risk as well as those students identified as having specific emotional and behavioural disorders. His wide variety of teaching experiences in both segregated and regular classroom settings, as well as his experiences as an administrator,have been instrumental in serving as a springboard into his research investigating the needs of students ‘at risk’.
