Carl Williams is one of Flagler’s most distinguished and hardworking professors in the education department. The Schultz Grant recipient and widely published professor has been honored with the Dean’s Award for Excellence in Professional Development, the Outstanding Professor of the Year Award and the SGA Faculty Member of the Year Award.
Williams received his Ed.D. in educational leadership and his M.Ed. in special education from the University of North Florida; he received his B.A. in deaf education and English from Flagler College. He teaches several courses in deaf education at Flagler and serves as the Secondary English Education Coordinator.
Prior to his service at Flagler, Williams taught at the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind. His expertise in and dedication to deaf education led to the 2006 publication of his text “It All Depends, A Casebook for Prospective Teachers of Students Who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing,” a case study book in deaf education that he uses in his classroom to teach students.
Williams recently earned a sabbatical for the 2014-15 school year. He plans on spending this time conducting and gathering research for a second edition of his 2006 text. Williams is also the author of “No Limits: A practical guide for teaching deaf and hard of hearing students,” which broke ground in deaf education as the first book of its kind to correlate with the Council on Educating the Deaf standards and the Educational Content Standards in Deaf Education.
