Dr. Devereaux received her doctorate of education in Curriculum and Teaching ​with a concentration in Urban Education from Teachers College, Columbia University in New York City. Cathryn's research centers around youth of color, equity, culturally responsive leadership, and anti-racism. Her experiences teaching in alternative schools and at a juvenile detention center also point her to questions around Black girlhood, the school-to-prison pipeline and the opportunity gap.

Outside of her research, Cathryn enjoys consulting with teachers and school districts to help them

restructure curriculum and learning environments in order to meet the needs of the diverse range students they serve. Cathryn is also a filmmaker, writer, and director, who loves to use her talents to create meaningful professional development opportunities for educators and uplift the voices of marginalized communities.
