Inspired By

“Dr. Elizabeth Patton: this well-respected individual not only took the time to write me an incredible recommendation letter, but she has become an important figure in my life. She has become mentor, role model, and most importantly, a trusted confidant. Dr. Patton is someone I aspire to be like some day. Dr. John Finch: Dr. Finch awoke a passion in me that I didn’t know I had for multicultural education. His vast knowledge, frankness, and kindness are something to be admired. He’s one of the few professors I have come across, in my long academic career, whose respect I’d like to have and keep. Dr. Patricia Condon: Dr. Condon was with me from the very beginning. Everything she contributed from our initial meeting to my committee interview/review was invaluable. I am grateful for her knowledge, feedback, and patience throughout the process.”
