Contributing Faculty
Richard W. Riley College of Education and Human Sciences
Doctor of Education (EdD)

Dr. Shereeza Mohammed has worked at Walden University since 2014. As a senior core faculty member in the Residencies and Research department of the School of Education and Professional Licensure, she serves several main multiple roles: Course instructor, Committee chair, Second member, University Research Reviewer and Program Director Prospectus Reviewer. Professionally, she has taught graduate and doctoral courses since 2004 at five different universities in Florida and Texas. At Walden, she taught a total of 14 doctoral level courses. As a committee member, she has worked as a committee chair, second member and URR for as many as 58 committees at one time. She believes that taking students to the next level requires both a supportive and empowering approach regardless of their stage in their respective programs. At Walden University she serves as an assistant editor for the Journal of Educational Research and Practice. She is the faculty advisor for The National Society of Leadership and Success and is also a committee member at the Walden Center for Social Change. She has also worked with on district research projects and is currently a program evaluator for an International programs office for a college in Texas. She frequently reviews books for Berrett Koehler Publishers. This is advantageous as she uses these experiences to become aware of what is written for teachers and educators at an audience level that is different from peer-reviewed articles. This helps her relate to professional students in The Richard W. Riley College of Education and Leadership as they transition from students to practitioner-scholars. Ultimately, Dr. Mohammed is an educator with an approach to empower students to reach their full potential. She is committed to helping and supporting other faculty members to do the same, as the need arises. Indeed, she strongly believes that if high expectations are placed in front of students and they are supported through their respective programs with all that life throws at them, they will succeed!
