Professor Doreen Mazzye is an alumnus of State University of New York at Oswego with a Bachelor’s of Science in Childhood Education in 2000. She began her teaching career in a rural, New York State fourth grade classroom, then continued teaching fourth grade in South Hamilton, Massachusetts. Inspired to refine the writing of students, she developed her Master’s research around the exposure of image rich literature to influence the imagery in students’ writing. In 2003, Professor Mazzye completed her Master of Education from Gordon College and began teaching grade three students. In 2008, Professor Mazzye was appointed Supervisor of Student Teachers and School Liaison at Syracuse University. Continuing in her passion for literature and teacher education, Professor Mazzye began teaching at State University of New York at Oswego in 2011 as an adjunct professor and was hired full time as a Visiting Assistant Professor in 2012 in Childhood Education. She continues to develop relationships with local school districts to create a mutually inspiring connection between higher education and primary education. Along with her passion for teaching, Professor Mazzye is also pursuing learning in her doctorate program in Curriculum Instruction and the Science of Learning at University of Buffalo.


Professor Mazzye is interested in the gap between scientifically based literacy research and teacher practice. She is dedicated to ensure that pre-service teachers deeply understand principles of research and theory to benefit future practice of literacy instruction.
