Short Bio

Carey Andrzejewski, Ph.D., is a Professor in the Department of Educational Foundations, Leadership, and Technology at Auburn University.  As a critical scholar of teaching, Dr. Andrzejewski explores and facilitates the work of educators toward more socially just schools. This commitment is evident in all the domains of her professional work: service, outreach, and teaching. As an award-winning teacher, she works to nurture aspiring teachers and researchers toward humanizing and equitable practices.

Broadly, her research explores the development of critical consciousness in pre-service and practicing educators: how do educators come to understand systems of privilege and oppression, and how does that understanding (re)shape their orientations toward students, schooling, and educational policy? Her current multi-method program of research, a collaboration with Dr. Hannah Baggett, explores the intersections among state and local policy, school discipline practice, and anti-Black racism in Alabama.
