Dr. George's research has focused on the influence of gender role attitudes on the romantic relationships and future aspirations of rural youth.
I teach interdisciplinary content concerning human and family development across the lifespan. Additionally, I've taught health education courses at the middle, high school, and college levels. My teaching strives for high student engagement that includes project-based learning, critical thought, and practical application of content.
