Administrators and Staff

Dr. Jennifer Hauver, Associate Dean of Education Programs

Dr. Hauver began her teaching career in the DMV area in 1997 after receiving her MEd from George Washington University. She taught kindergarten, 3rd and 5th grade for Fairfax County and was certified as a math lead teacher.

In 2006, she earned her doctorate from the University of Maryland, College Park, in teacher education, and took her first academic job at Kent State University in Ohio. As an assistant professor of early childhood education, she taught general education courses, methods courses, and graduate level courses in democratic education.

In 2010, she transitioned to the University of Georgia in Athens, GA. There, she was tenured and promoted to associate professor. She taught general education and social studies methods courses for pre-service and practicing K-12 teachers as well as graduate courses in research and social education. She worked extensively within the local school district, Clarke County Schools, teaching courses onsite, offering professional development and conducting research with teachers. Findings from her collaborative research were published in 2019 by Routledge in a book entitled, Young Children’s Civic Mindedness: Living and Learning in an Unequal World. Her research focuses on democratic and civic education, with specific interest in service-learning and classroom dialogue as means of fostering civic skills and dispositions. She has published widely and presented in many national and international venues.

Before coming to Trinity, Dr. Hauver served as associate professor and chair of the Department of Education at Randolph-Macon University. While there she took a leave of absence and taught high school history, geography and economics for 18 months in Fairfax County, VA. She is thrilled to have joined the Trinity community and looks forward to the exciting and important work that lies ahead. |  202-884-9557  |  Office location: Main 328
