Meet Annette, recently graduated SJSU doctoral student and one of the leaders of Lurie College!

“Education is the arena where I find the most joy in providing service to others. My career is dedicated to leveling the playing field for students who are struggling academically, living in poverty, experiencing race-based microaggressions, and/or other risk factors. Guided by a transformative lens, my life’s work of “Bridging the Gap for Students of Promise” is to promote human rights and social justice advocacy through propelling systemic changes in unjust educational systems.”

Meet Ana, SJSU staff member and one of the leaders of Lurie College!

“My passion for education was modeled to me by my grandfather, who helped raise me. A former farmworker with a fifth grade education, my grandfather had a hunger for learning and reading that inspired me to take advantage of every resource possible in college, graduate school, and my career. I’m grateful to be working for SJSU and the College of Education because I see a genuine passion for learning all around me and a strong commitment to expand educational opportunities for others.”

“The Ed.D program experience has enriched and helped me evolve in ways that I never imagined. The incredible faculty and my cohort members in the Ed.D. program have made a significant contribution to my research and critical thinking skills. In three years of the program, I have learned more about myself as a person and as a leader. I now feel confident and prepared to apply the knowledge, skills and perspectives I have gained through the program to be a passionate and transformative leader.”
