Graduate Teaching Associate
Jessica L. Schachle is a Ph.D. candidate in sociology at Oklahoma State University. She obtained her Master of Arts from Wichita State University where her quantitative thesis explored how participation in extracurricular activities impacted student academic success among high school girls.
Her current areas of research include education, social movements, race and ethnicity, and gender and sexuality. One of her current lines of research examines the importance of identity and social ties for participants of the 2018 Oklahoma teacher walkout. Her qualitative dissertation will develop an understanding of how K-12 teachers in Oklahoma navigate instruction on race, gender, and sexuality.
