Dr. McMaster’s career began in Nashville where she worked as a special education teacher at Metro-Nashville Public Schools and participated in research in special education at Vanderbilt University. Today, her interest in special education has evolved into finding successful intervention approaches for severely challenged learners by promoting teachers’ use of data-based decision-making and evidence-based instruction as well as by developing individualized interventions for struggling students. McMaster completes these research tasks through her direct involvement with the University of Minnesota’s Research Institute for Problem Solving and Reading Comprehension Lab. She earned her Ph.D. from Vanderbilt University in the Department of Special Education.
