Professional Background

Dr. Burnett-Brown recently left public education to pursue her long-time career goal of working with organizations to expand racial and cultural awareness, and work through issues of cultural conflict and discrimination issues through alternative dispute resolution. She is especially interested in academic settings where students as well as teachers find themselves targets of discrimination. Knowing the limitations of educator organizations, Dr. Burnett-Brown realized there needed to be another means of teachers seeking justice for their employment disputes beyond preserving the teaching certificate, or even remaining employed. Dr. Burnett-Brown holds a PhD in psychology, is pursuing her credentials as a diversity consultant to add to her level of expertise and published research in the areas of issues and controversies surrounding teachers and their ability to teach accurate history, logical truths, and critical reasoning without oppression from administration and districts to conform to biased ideologies regarding race, religion, and politics. Currently, Dr. Burnett-Brown is a faculty member of University of Phoenix, Atlanta Campus where she teaches Social Psychology, Cultural Diversity, EEOC and Culture, and the Psychology of Learning. In addition to these, she enjoys academic writing and research and writes for several publications and websites offering counseling and academic services. Dr. Burnett-Brown is a life-long leaner and researcher in her field and believes that no answers are found without perseverance and a desire for truth.
