Maria Teresa Tatto, Southwest Borderlands Professor of Comparative Education in Arizona State University's Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College, has been named a fellow of the American Educational Research Association.

New fellows are traditionally presented at associations annual conference in spring, but due to the cancellation of the event out of concerns over COVID-19, the in-person announcement couldn’t take place. Instead, the association recently created video profiles, including this one featuring Tatto, to introduce members to the new class of fellows.

American Educational Research Association fellows are nominated by their peers, selected by the fellows committee and approved by the association’s elected governing body. Tatto is one of 12 fellows to be inducted this year, joining 665 current AERA fellows recognized for excellence in research and scholarship.
