Vicki Dagostino is an Associate Lecturer of Educational Psychology at the University of Toledo. She teaches courses in both Educational Psychology and Educational Sociology in the department of Foundations of Education. Her research area of interest is psychological and sociological theory. She is interested in examining the convergence of these two fields as she sees them as integral to each other. She has most recently co-authored two book chapters that are directly related to the endeavor of integrating the psychological with the sociological. She is heavily influenced by the theoretical work of Paulo Freire and Erich Fromm.
