Ruby L. Owiny, PhD

Associate Professor of Education


BA, Asbury University
MA, Asbury University
PhD, University of Kentucky


Dr. Owiny worked for 13 years in both private Christian schools and public schools in Lexington, KY. She served as an elementary classroom teacher and as a special educator. Her passion for teaching lies in the inner city in which she spent 11 years of her career. Her dissertation was based on virtual coaching of general education and special education teachers in Guatemala to train them in new teacher behaviors. Her current research interests include identifying methods for improving the quality of inclusive settings, including strategies teachers use in their general education classrooms, the relationship of general educators with their special educator counterparts in co-teaching relationships, and the interactions of students in those settings. Outside of the University, she directs Project REACH, a ministry to teachers in third world countries, to train them in inclusive principles.
