Dr. Katie Scott Newhouse is a Clinical Assistant Professor and Program Director of Special Education programs in the Department of Teaching and Learning. She holds her Doctorate of Education from Teachers College, Columbia University. She received her Master’s in Middle Childhood and Special Education from Pace University and her Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology from NYU’s College of Arts and Sciences.

Katie began her career working as a special education classroom teacher for middle and high school students. Her fields of study include disability studies in education, DisCrit, and critical spatial theory. Katie is interested in exploring the possibilities of multimodal research methods and qualitative approaches towards developing accessible pedagogy and scholarship. Her recent publications, “Why did Devon just leave the classroom?” and “The Mess in the Middle: Portraying the Unrecorded Purposeful Labors of Care That Emerge Throughout Multimodal Ethnographic Methods and Researcher Peer Support” emphasize a more ethical, care-based approach to research with youth which also informs teaching and learning.

She is the Program Co-Chair for the Disability Studies in Education (DSE) Special Interest Group (SIG) in the American Educational Research Association (AERA) of which she is also a member.
