MORGANTOWN, WV -

Kimberly Floyd, a professor at West Virginia University's College of Education and Human Services, has been selected a 2013 Darden College of Education Fellow at Old Dominion University.

Floyd won the honor for her ongoing research and teaching in special education. 

She holds degrees from East Carolina University, where she completed a master's degree in special education and her bachelor's degree in school psychology. She earned her doctorate in special education from Old Dominion where her dissertation focused on using assistive technology with post-secondary students who have learning disabilities. 

Since joining WVU in 2009, Floyd has expanded on her dissertation research to include implementing assistive and emerging technologies in general and special education classrooms.

She was awarded WVU's Outstanding Teaching Awards in 2011 and 2013, and created and serves as coordinator of the Collaborative Assistive Technology Education Lab. Floyd also has secured grants, authored numerous journal articles and book chapters, and presented repeatedly on her teaching and research.

Floyd will represent the College of Education and Human Services at an awards ceremony Nov. 19 at the Ted Constant Convocation Center in Norfolk, Va., as part of the National Education Association's celebration of American Education Week.
