As a former middle grades and high school teacher, assistant principal, principal, and county office of education administrator, and associate professor for educational leadership, her primary focus continues to be developing culturally proficient leadership practices.

She facilitates educators to develop their own inquiry and action research. Her favorite reflective question is: Are we who we say we are?

Delores and husband Randall, her favorite Sage/Corwin author, continue to co-write about the application of the four Tools of Cultural Proficiency.
