Maria Teresa Tatto, Southwest Borderlands Professor of Comparative Education, was named a fellow of the American Educational Research Association last spring. New fellows are traditionally presented at AERA’s annual conference, 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. AERA 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.

Current, emeritus and affiliated MFLTC faculty members previously inducted as AERA fellows include Alfredo Artiles, Dale Baker, Sasha Barab, David Berliner, Bryan Brayboy, Michelene Chi, Carol Connor, Gustavo Fischman, Eugene García, James Gee, Gene Glass, Steve Graham, Karen Harris, Danielle McNamara, Joseph Ryan and Patrick Thompson.
