Biography
Jamia Thomas-Richmond earned a Doctorate of Philosophy in Education with a specialization in Exceptional Student Education from the University of Central Florida in the spring of 2004. She was a visiting assistant professor in the College of Education at the University of Central Florida Daytona Beach campus for four years. She has developed research interests around areas that can positively and significantly impact the quality of life of people of diverse cultural backgrounds. Consequently, her research has focused on working with culturally diverse exceptional students and their families. Others areas of interest include parental involvement in education, collaboration among teachers and families, and recruitment and retention of minority students in teacher education programs.

In 2008, Thomas-Richmond launched a business, Richmond Educational Center for Exceptional Students and Supports (R.E.C.E.S.S.), which focuses on meeting the needs of exceptional students, their families, and the schools in which they are served. Richmond has presented at conferences and seminars across the United States from San Diego, California to Portland, Maine. Currently, she is an assistant professor in the Spadoni College of Education at Coastal Carolina University, teaching diversity/multicultural education and special education courses.
