VIDBE-Q Volume 67 Issue 1 Nominated by Kristin S. Hassett Dr. Marina McCormick is the 2022 recipient of the Deborah D. Hatton Dissertation of the Year award. Dr. McCormick is currently serving as a lecturer in the UH Special Populations undergraduate, master's, certification, and doctoral programs. Dr. McCormick is an outstanding scholar and research-practitioner. She made a significant contribution to the field through extensive study and research in her dissertation, An Analysis of Texas' Professional Development Efforts in DeafBlindness and its Effects on Teacher Self-Efficacy. There is extant research on the relationship between teacher self-efficacy and effective teaching practices, but very little research in this area for teachers of the deaf and visually impaired. Dr. McCormick's research addressed the relationship between professional developing/coaching/technical assistance and teacher self-efficacy. Her research in this area is critical to the field and is the beginning line of research that will meaningfully impact students with deafblindness. Deborah D. Hatton Outstanding Dissertation of the Year Award: Dr. Marina McCormick
