She has been a Fulbright Fellow exploring science education in Cameroon, West Africa and has been awarded grants to develop approaches for community-driven and place-based science pedagogy in Kenya. Her research focuses on learning contexts – including curriculum, culture, technology, and environment – as students learn science. Her research within this focus has explored (1) the role of a community-based STEM program on improving health and access to STEM education in rural Kenya, (2) the ways in which graduate students in chemistry learn to network and collaborate across cultures through research visits to China, and (3) examining U.S. elementary students’ social interactions as they learn to use new technologies.   Dr. Leak endeavors to provide students and future teachers with experiences that allow them to recognize and value cultural aspects involved in science practice in order to improve access to effective and inclusive STEM learning. Part of learning science involves understanding the role of culture, tools, and technology of scientific communities and how they practice science. For learners around the world, the intersections of culture and science dictate how people position themselves as scientists and how their cultural knowledge fits or conflicts with that of scientific communities.

The education program at High Point University has long been recognized for its excellence throughout North Carolina and the eastern United States. Our program is based within the liberal arts tradition; it is rigorous, field-centered and highly personalized. The teacher education programs at High Point University meet the requirements of both the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) and the North Carolina State Board of Education.

Effective Fall 2019:
Students pursuing degrees in the School of Education will have the option of selecting between the Licensure-Track and Non-Licensure Track programs of study within the Elementary Education, Special Education, Middle Grades Education or Health/Physical Education programs of study.

Licensure Track:
Student Teaching with N.C. licensure will become an optional track that students may pursue at the end of the program.  Choosing this track requires completion of the mandatory 16-week student teaching, all related licensure tests, and the edTPA portfolio.  These credits will be included in the required 128 to graduate.

Degree ONLY (Non-Licensure Track)
Students who choose (or who are moved) to the non-licensure track in the degree program will earn a B.A. degree in Elementary Education, Special Education, Middle Grades Education or Health/Physical Education.  Instead of student teaching students will complete other university electives to reach the required 128 credits for graduation and a four credit internship that is not student teaching.   The School of Education does not apply for North Carolina license as the required student teaching, edTPA portfolio, and teacher exams are not part of this track.
