Maria Teresa Tatto, Southwest Borderlands Professor of Comparative Education in Arizona State University's Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College, has been named a fellow of the American Educational Research Association.

New fellows are traditionally presented at associations annual conference in spring, but due to the cancellation of the event out of concerns over COVID-19, the in-person announcement couldn’t take place. Instead, the association recently created video profiles, including this one featuring Tatto, to introduce members to the new class of fellows.
