Tim Knoster, Ed.D., is an associate professor in the School of Education, College of Professional Studies, at Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania and also serves as Executive Director of the international Association for Positive Behavior Support. Dr. Knoster has been involved with preservice and inservice teacher training since the mid- 1980s. He has worn many hats throughout his career, including that of classroom teacher, Director of Student Support Services and Special Education, and Principal Investigator on federal projects focused on classroom and student-centered behaviour intervention and support. In addition, Dr. Knoster has extensive experience in providing professional development for classroom teachers throughout the United States and has been the recipient of various awards for his endeavours in this regard. He has extensively published manuscripts, training materials, and other practitioner-oriented resources concerning the linkages among research, policy, and practice in the classroom. Most important, Dr. Knoster has an uncanny ability to help teachers interpret the research literature on behavioural matters in a way that enables them to translate that same research into practical strategies and approaches in their classrooms. Along these same lines, Dr. Knoster has a national reputation of being a dynamic advocate, leader, and presenter concerning classroom management and student-centred behaviour intervention and support.
