    Hi all

    My name is Philip McAdoo.  I am a Doctoral Candidate at the University of Pennsylvania in the Graduate School of Education.  For my dissertation thesis project I am conducting a study entitled: Out and Visible: A Study of Openly Gay and Lesbian Teachers in Independent Schools. Since I was a gay teacher at an independent school, I am interested in learning how teachers who are openly gay or lesbian perceive their sexual orientation as informing their identity as teachers.   I am conducting this study because I believe that understanding the experiences of openly gay and lesbian teachers helps school leaders better meet the needs of LGBTQ teachers and students.

    If you or someone that you know would be interested in participating in this study, please send me an email at philipmcadoo@gmail.com and I will update you with more details.

    Please feel free to email me if you have any questions

    My best
