Dr. Troy Hutchings researches, writes, speaks, and develops materials on a national level in the areas of teacher sexual misconduct with students, educator decision-making, and the professional continuum-of-responsibility associated with development of a professional framework for an ethical and legal teaching practice. He presents to state and national policy groups; legal and investigative practitioner organizations; and to teacher education administrators, school district administrators and teachers, state teacher associations, department of education leaders, and licensing officials across the country. He has developed university curricula on educator ethics and law; actively collaborates with the Ontario College of Teachers (Canada), the United States Army JROTC, and other agencies; served as the subject expert on a full-length interactive movie dealing with teacher sexual misconduct with students; served as a court expert witness; and has participated in a number of other educator ethics projects. His contributions to educator professional practices were recognized nationally by the National Association of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification (NASDTEC) in 2009, when he received the Annual Doug Bates Award and gave the associated lecture.
Hutchings is currently the Research Chair for Education at the University of Phoenix. He has a record of teaching, leadership, and administrative responsibility at Northern Arizona University’s College of Education that spanned 12 years. He also served as a high school administrator, teacher, and coach in public and private schooling environments for 16 years, resulting in numerous school, district, and state teaching awards.
He earned his B.S. in English Education from the University of South Dakota, M.A. in Secondary Education from Arizona State University, M.Ed. in Educational Leadership from Northern Arizona University, and his doctorate in Educational Leadership from Northern Arizona University.
