Dr. Emmerling-Baker's research: A Qualitative Interpretive Phenomenological Study of K5 Teachers' Perceptions of Empathy Instruction, published in 2017, corroborated other research indicating that educators want to give more focus to empathy instruction and practice, but need leaders to guide them and the community to share their focus for compassion and creativity. Dr. Baker is not only an educational leader, but her experience as an RN with a BSN from OHSU offers her insight and experience with the intersections of mental and physical health upon student engagement and achievement.
