Corrine Aramburo is a doctoral candidate in the Joint Doctoral Program in Special Education at UC Berkeley and San Francisco State University. Her research interests include special education teacher preparation; special education teacher knowledge; on-site administration; special education leadership practices; local special education administrators; supporting the education and inclusion of students with extensive support needs; attribution theory; and the social-medical model of disability.
Corrine completed her BA in English and History Education at Brigham Young University - Idaho (2008) and an MA in special education in the Extensive Support Needs program at San Francisco State University (2014). Corrine taught middle school English and history before becoming a special day class teacher for students with extensive support needs. For the past five years, Corrine mentors and supervises pre-service special education teachers in the extensive support needs programs at San Francisco State University.
Currently, Corrine’s research examines the factors that contribute to the marginalization of students with disabilities — particularly those with significant intellectual disabilities — and how these factors can be diminished via teacher preparation programs and pre-service instruction.
