"The Graduate Program offered me extended time in an ecosystem that nurtured curiosity and health, a strong sense of community and ongoing networks of support and opportunity, and solid foundations in education. Through the Graduate Program, I engaged theories and pedagogies of education that continue to influence my work as a teacher, and I had my first experience with qualitative education research, which has become a major part of my scholarly identity."
