Farewell to the NIFDI Research Team
Please join NIFDI in sending a fond farewell to our NIFDI Research team, Jean Stockard and Tim Wood. Jean has been Director of Research since 2008, and Tim has been a Research Associate since 2012. Both have been instrumental in generating original research and white papers as well as creating the Direct Instruction database.
Jean will pursue other research projects, including various facets of retirement and grandmotherhood. When reflecting on her time with NIFDI, Jean said, "I have immensely enjoyed learning about Direct Instruction and interacting with the dedicated community of educators and practitioners."
Tim will focus on completing his graduate work in historical preservation.
For the time being NIFDI's active research will be on hiatus, but we will still be updating the research database and fulfilling research paper requests. If you or your associates publish anything related to DI, please continue to forward a copy to our offices by mail or email to .
