Kate Perry teaches in the School Psychology program and serves as a clinical supervisor for students in field placements in public schools. She has also worked as a school psychologist since 1999. In 2002 she was awarded a National Academy of Education/Spencer Foundation postdoctoral fellowship for her research on the social context of early schooling and young children's social adjustment. Her research focuses on examining whether teaching practices, and in particular how students perceive these practices, play a role in the development of academic, behavioral, and socio-emotional competencies.
