In 2000, the Dawsons left southwestern Virginia, where Mike and Tina lived for 26 years. Tina taught in and directed PK–12 programs, mostly independent alternative community schools, for over 20 years. In the past 20+ years, she has been both faculty member and administrator for brick and mortar and online universities. Dr. Dawson has participated in varied educational collaborations between the public and private sectors. Since joining Walden in 2005, she has taught research methodology, written several courses, and served on many doctoral committees as chair, committee member, and URR. Tina enjoys helping students think through the inquiry process.
