Dr. LeAnn M. Holland is an Assistant Professor of Education and the Coordinator of the Educational Leadership graduate programs. Her interest in educational leadership was developed early as university administrative intern and then as a 6th Grade English Language Arts teacher and member of the Building Leadership Team on the Rosebud Sioux Reservation in Mission, South Dakota. At the college level, she has taught a number of graduate and undergraduate courses in introductory philosophy, ethics, and philosophy of education. Most recently, Dr. Holland worked as a senior guide for Discover Outdoors in New York City, building wilderness leadership educational curriculum. She earned her Ph.D. in Philosophy and Education from Columbia University and has published on learning in weather-rich environments in several peer-reviewed journals. Her research, more broadly, identifies when and how learning occurs in nature. She is a particular fan of cold winter weather, thanks to her northern Minnesota roots. Dr. Holland enjoys teaching both undergraduate and graduate seminars at St. Lawrence University, fulfilling her middle school dream to teach at a premier small liberal arts college.
