Research

Dr. George's research has focused on the influence of gender role attitudes on the romantic relationships and future aspirations of rural youth. 

Current Research

I continue to work on the influence of gender role attitudes on the development of romantic relationships among rural youth. I will expand this line of inquiry by considering parental occupations and close relationships. 

Additionally, my research includes pedagogical issues in teaching human developmen and family sciences, particularly concerning student engagement, formative assessment, and project based learning. 

Teaching

I teach interdisciplinary content concerning human and family development across the lifespan.  Additionally, I've taught health education courses at the middle, high school, and college levels. My teaching strives for high student engagement that includes project-based learning, critical thought, and practical application of content.
