Dr. Michael Marlowe

Mike Marlowe joined the faculty at Appalachian State University in 1986 as a professor of special education and chair of the Department of Language, Reading, and Exceptionalities. Dr. Marlowe has also taught at The University of Wyoming and Tennessee Technological University. Prior to receiving his Ph.D. in Special Education from the University of Florida, he taught children in classrooms for emotional and behavioral disorders in Indiana and Kentucky.

Dr. Marlowe's early research focused on the relationship between the neuropsychological performance of children with disabilities and their exposure to lead and other metal toxins. His current research interests are (1) the construction of the relationship-driven classroom model for educating children with emotional and behavioral disorders which is based on the teacher stories of Torey Hayden, and (2) using the teacher stories of Hayden in teacher education to modify teachers' attitudes and practices toward children with disabilities.
