She has a bachelor’s degree in elementary education from the University of Northern Iowa, a master’s in elementary education from Northern State University and doctor of education in curriculum and instruction from the University of South Dakota.
Feinstein’s professional experience includes work in public school systems in Aberdeen, S.D., and Luverne, Minn., as well as the University of South Dakota.
She has held several leadership roles at Augustana College and in the Sioux Falls community.
Feinstein is widely published, with numerous books and journal articles to her credit. Her work – which includes the book “The Brain and Strength Based School Leadership” – integrates elements of leadership and cognitive processes.
