Editor Biographies
Kathryn Jones is a former K-12 English as a Second Language teacher, is a Clinical Instructor for the Center for Doctoral Studies in Educational Leadership at Lamar University. Dr. Jones’ passion for non-English speakers and newcomers to America have compelled her focus to others’ needs besides her own. Her research interests include second language acquisition, discourse patterns, global leadership, and linguistic relativity. After developing the term, Intercultural Responsiveness (IR), she is now focusing on its implications within the education system along with business organizations and community groups. She hopes to leave a legacy by modeling Intercultural Responsiveness (IR) in her personal and professional life.
