Leaders of Lurie College | Michele

Meet Michele, SJSU faculty member and one of the leaders of Lurie College! Also, congratulations to Michele for recently achieving the standing of Associate Professional Clinical Counselor with the Board of Behavioral Sciences!

“Education has been a safe haven over the years, leaving me with fond memories from kindergarten through graduate school. In addition to classes; sports, student government and Work Study enhanced my experience by connecting me to positive role models and mentors – preparing me for the world of work, where learning never ceases. Therefore, as an instructor, I am passionate about engaging students in their learning process so they can also develop a love for learning and become a lifelong learner.”

Leaders of Lurie College | Luis

Meet Luis, SJSU faculty member and one of the leaders of Lurie College!

“I lived in six Latin American countries before moving to the US at 16. I may not have a hometown, but I have a good understanding of how varied history, politics, and economics shape cultural practices (and vice versa), including how people are labeled and how those labels affect educational opportunity. I am proud to work with teachers learning how to affirm students’ cultures and help them be agents in their own schooling so that all students, regardless of their labels, can thrive and learn.”
