Her research focuses on the impact of mandated reform efforts on educators, specifically teachers in mid-career and teachers and leaders in struggling schools. In addition to this research, Stone-Johnson is also studying teacher leadership and the development of instructional leadership in underperforming public schools, and the challenges of large-scale qualitative research. Stone-Johnson previously taught middle school English in New York City through the Teach For America program.
