Ashley A. Grant. PhD, is a doctoral graduate from the School of Education at Johns Hopkins University. Prior to her doctoral studies, she taught 5th grade in urban Catholic schools in Philadelphia, PA through the Alliance for Catholic Education at Saint Joseph’s (ACESJU) program. Her dissertation examined the effect of restorative practices on teachers’ career intentions and the mechanisms of school climate and implementation. Overall, her research utilized quantitative methods to study teacher retention in urban, high turnover schools, with a particular emphasis on teachers’ working conditions, school climate, and teachers’ well-being. At Johns Hopkins, she worked with the Center for Social Organization of Schools (CSOS) on an evaluation of restorative practices and with the Institute for Education Policy (IEP) on the development of a best in class school culture survey.
