Associate Professor of Education
It’s hard to tell with children these days. Maybe their dog really did eat their homework. Maybe their mom completed the assignment for them. Or perhaps the worksheet was done wrong because neither parent took time to help them.
The parent’s role in homework is among several research topics Dr. Frances Crochet explores in presentations, papers and her classes. Crochet joined the Nicholls College of Education in 2000 as an assistant professor before becoming the director of student teaching in 2002. Wanting to focus more on teaching and research, Crochet returned to her role as an assistant professor in 2006. Her specialty is reading and language arts and special education.
“We as teachers have the most rewarding job ever,” Crochet says. “We have an awesome responsibility to teach all children, which is why I love working with future teachers.”
In her spare time, Crochet enjoys reading, knitting, gardening, being at the beach and spending time with her family.
