What are your personal and professional hopes/goals for your PhD journey and beyond?

Jo Ann Gammel mentioned in passing that many learners view the doctorate as a means to do their jobs better or serve more effectively in their role. The reality is, she pointed out, the learner becomes a different person and often outgrows the role. The PhD journey changes one’s perspective on the self; guarding one’s study and writing time is a way of honoring the self. As a result, a different level of valuing begins to happen which may inevitably lead to new and exciting opportunities that were unimaginable before the journey began.

Has a particular book, author or thinker inspired your educational thinking?

Buber, Vygotsky, Bandura, and Rogers.
