Professor of Education; BA, MEd, EdD, University of Virginia
Dr. McCrory graduated from the University of Virginia in 1972 with a BA in Psychology then remained in Charlottesville for the next eight years to earn an MEd, to teach in the public schools for four years, and to earn an EdD in 1980. Following five years working as an Assistant Professor of Education at Birmingham-Southern College, he moved back to Virginia to begin teaching at Mary Baldwin University. Along the way, he and his wife raised four children and are blessed with five grandchildren.
Dr. McCrory’s greatest joy at Mary Baldwin is teaching. He has been fortunate to teach students in the Residential College for Women, in the Baldwin Online and Adult Programs, and in Graduate Education programs. Professional activities through the years have included serving as President of two state level associations, one of which was the Virginia Association of College and Universities with Teacher Education. He was one of four authors of the position statement of the American Association of College and Universities with Teacher Education.
Dr. McCrory has written papers and made presentations at national conferences, but his highest professional joy has been in the college classroom with Mary Baldwin students.
