Welcome New Faculty in the School of Education

Anthony BoucherDr. Anthony Boucher, Health Human Performance and Recreation .

Adopted at birth, Anthony Boucher (pronounced ‘boo shay’) moved to Honduras with his Peace Corps parents, when he was six weeks old. Later, he spent time in Venezuela, Chile, Guatemala, Saudi Arabia, and Puerto Rico. Texas is "home."

Dr. Boucher received bachelor degrees in zoology from Texas Tech (1993) and basic health care sciences from the University of Texas Medical Branch (1994). He then completed a master’s of physical therapy (UTMB, 1996) and was awarded his PhD in physical therapy from Texas Woman’s University’s School of Physical Therapy (2008).

"Baylor is the optimal place for me to profess my clinical and educational experiences in a Christian and research intensive environment," Dr. Boucher says.

He enjoys sports and spending time with his family, when not with students

Donald FullerDr. Donald Fuller, Health, Human Performance and Recreation

A native of Grand Rapids, Michigan, Dr. Fuller traveled to the University of New Mexico for his bachelor's degree (1989) and to Indiana State University for his master's degree (1991), both in athletic training. He completed his PhD (1995) at the University of Southern Mississippi in teaching and administration.

At Baylor, Dr. Fuller is director of the undergraduate athletic training program that prepares students for national certification and state licensure. His research focuses on professionalism within athletic training educational programs.

He came to Baylor because people he met from the program were friendly, supportive, helpful, and strong Christians. He enjoys working with students who want to be life-long learners.

Off campus, Dr. Fuller works with Meals-on-Wheels, the American Red Cross, and the Waco Cycling Club.

Mary Ann JordanDr. Mary Ann Jordan, Educational Administration.

Eastland, Texas, is home for Dr. Mary Ann Jordan. She graduated from Baylor University with majors in secondary education and English and a minor in mathematics.

She received her master’s degree from Texas A&M–Kingsville and her doctorate from the University of North Texas. After teaching mathematics, she served as a school administrator.

Dr. Jordan came to Baylor "to share my knowledge and expertise with persons who desire to be servant leaders to the students of Texas." She serves as program director for the newly re-established principal preparation program in the educational administration department.

In her free time, Dr. Jordan enjoys watching theater, music, and sports as well as driving her 1957 red Ford Thunderbird. She also plays the harp and the piano, and she enjoys traveling.
