Dr. Beverly has worked with learners with disabilities representing diverse backgrounds and contexts. She has worked in grades K-12, in rural and urban schools, and with majority and minority socio-economic, ethnic, and gender learners.

She has worked with college level learners from majors outside of education. She has worked with international teachers providing perspective and skills for working with diverse learners, including those with disabilities, in their changing schools and communities. Her work developing models to support learning and growth of cultural competence with college students participating in study abroad opportunities is informed by, and informs her own experiences, working with diverse learners. Her work on developing models of access, opportunity, encouragement and engagement in high quality learning opportunities for all persons grew from her work with learners with disabilities, from diverse experiences and contexts, and developing culturally competent educators and citizens. She integrates issues of leadership, cultural competence and access into all her work.
