Cameron’s interests focus on ways in which educational and social systems influence children, families, and educators. She is particularly concerned with how gender, race, ethnicity, and disability intersect with regard to equity, inclusion, and access to educational opportunity. Cameron’s past research has focused on access to quality childcare and early childhood education, the role of female sexuality in the secondary classroom, and educators’ perceptions of how English language learners with disabilities are served in schools. Prior to coming to OSU Cascades in 2004, she worked for over a decade as an educational assistant, special education teacher, and behavioral consultant.
