Andrew L. LaFave, M.Ed.

Ventura, California, United States

I'm a Ph.D. student in K-12 Urban Education Policy at the USC Rossier School of Education. My current research focuses on the schools as organizations and the power dynamics that exist between and among administrators, teachers, and students.

Prior to becoming a student at USC, I was an award-winning conductor and high school band director in Las Vegas, NV, where my ensembles consistently earned superior ratings at state and regional music festivals. I live on a 34-foot sailboat in Ventura, California with my wife, son, and cat.
