How has your pursuit of the Lesley PhD in Educational Studies resulted in personal and/or professional opportunities for you?
Professionally, I advanced to a position with more responsibilities

Advice to Lesley doctoral candidates…
If you know early on what you want to write your dissertation about, then gear your writing assignments toward that topic so that you can potentially take some of your writing and later include it in your dissertation.

  1. HI Carmen,
    Great to learn of your work in Botswana. A dream of mine is to travel to Africa and co-construct professional development endeavors with teachers who instruct early readers(grades K-3). Please let me know of any Fulbright-like opportunities that would facilitate my dream.
