Karen L. Goldman works professionally as an educator and artist. Dr. Goldman teaches advanced education classes at the University of the Cumberlands in Williamsburg, Kentucky and directs the Master of Arts in Education Teacher Leader Program. Recently, she presented at the American Association of Educational Research international conference and the Appalachian College Association.
Dr. Goldman’s artwork appears regularly at Fountain City Arts Center in Knoxville where she serves as a guild officer. Other recent exhibitions include Belmont University in Nashville, the University of Tennessee Downtown Gallery, the Knoxville Museum of Art, and the Watkins School of Art and Design in Nashville. This past winter Dr. Goldman presented at the National Art Education Association in New York City. Prior to coming to the University of the Cumberlands, Dr. Goldman served as principal as well as teacher for Knox County Schools in Knoxville, Tennessee. Additional duties included Professional Development classes at the Sarah Simpson Center and as a Mentoring Teacher with the Teacher Advancement Program.
As a published author in the area of creativity, she is also an award winning art educator, a popular presenter at various research associations, and teaches professional in-services specializing in Differentiated Instruction and Multiculturalism. Dr. Goldman was selected to attend the National Teacher Institute for study at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. as well as the International Symposium on Education in St. Petersburg, Russia. Her Ph.D. in Education focused on Cultural Studies, an interdisciplinary field that explores the role of social institutions in the shaping of culture. Adding to theories of aesthetics, Dr. Goldman created her theory, The Web of Betweeness, which explores the concept of power emitted through creative and imaginative thought.
Other degrees held by Dr. Goldman are the Specialist in Education degree for School Administration and Supervision, along with the M.S. and B.S. degrees in Art Education from the University of Tennessee and Arrowmont School of Design and Craft. Dr. Goldman developed and administered educational programs from Eastern Tennessee into the Cumberland Plateau of Appalachia to reach a variety of learners with special needs, low SES, and the artistically gifted.
Dr. Gary Pate, an alumnus of University of the Cumberlands, graduated with a B.S. in History in 1972.

In 2009, I obtained a Doctorate of Philosophy in Educational Leadership and Research from the University of Southern Mississippi. I hold a Specialist’s degree in Education with a cognate in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Southern Mississippi completed in 2006, a Master’s degree in Education with an emphasis in math from William Carey University completed in 2004, and a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Education with an emphasis in reading and math and a minor in computer science from the University of Southern Mississippi completed in 1995. In 2004 I became a Nationally Board Certified Teacher.
Graduate instructional load at the University of the Cumberlands includes mathematical methods and teaching strategies in the following courses: MAOL 530 concepts of mathematics, MAOL 531- teaching mathematics to students with learning disabilities, and MAOL 532 – teaching elementary and middle school mathematics. Undergraduate instructional load includes EDUC 331- special topics reading and writing in the content areas. I also serve as a University Teacher Educator for the Kentucky Teacher Internship Program. Prior to joining the full time faculty at the University of the Cumberlands, I was an adjunct professor at the University of Southern Mississippi with an instructional load that included math for elementary teachers, and classroom management for elementary teachers. I also provided tutoring sessions to graduate students in research and statistical analysis of data while completing my doctoral degree.
My educational knowledge was gained from a wide array of teaching experiences ranging from substituting, assistant teacher, classroom teacher, and lead math teacher over a span of 18 years. During that time I have educated students in grades Kindergarten through 12th grade with most of my years of service focused on 4th grade self-contained classroom and 9th -12th high school transitions to algebra, algebra and geometry. All of my public school education experience has been served in Title I schools immersed with cultural diversity serving students designated as at-risk of failure with high needs.

My work focuses on teacher training, specifically about individuals with disabilities. I am a Board Certified Behavior Analyst so I can work with children who have severe behavior disorders. I am fluent in American Sign Language and use it in my work with deaf children who have Autism. I am an expert in writing IEPs and have served as an expert witness in Due Process hearings. I also assist teachers in developing and implementing classroom research projects. As a speaker I travel to schools providing inservices on research-based instruction, inclusion, effective IEP development, behavior management and data collection.
