Meet Tuan, recently graduated SJSU grad student and one of the leaders of Lurie College!
“Eleven years ago, I was disoriented and discouraged by so many obstacles when I first step my foot into this new land from Vietnam. However, what ran through my blood was the undying passion of becoming someone who would make differences. SJSU and the Lurie College of Education helped me complete my journey of becoming a school teacher, who will guide the new generation. I believe everyone has the innate ability to be successful, and I want to be a part of that process.”
Meet Melanie, recently graduated SJSU grad student and one of the leaders of Lurie College!
“My experiences as both a student and an educator left me with many questions about the education system and how schools do, or do not, support students. The College of Education provided me with the tools and support I needed to seek answers and continue asking questions in pursuit of inclusive and effective schools for all students. I am grateful to the faculty for fostering this inquisitiveness and for guiding future educators to be thoughtful, self-reflective critical thinkers.”
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 Doaa, SJSU graduate student and one of the leaders of Lurie College!
“I always wanted to help save lives as a doctor. I never thought that I can impact lives in any other way. But here I am, graduating in Fall 2019 with my master’s degree in counselor education along with my PPS and LPCC. I finally get to make a difference and help make an impact in peoples lives. Being an educator is to continue educating kids, their families, and their communities. But it also means that every single person I encounter, I will learn something as well.”
Meet Angelie, recently graduated SJSU grad student and one of the leaders of Lurie College!
“As an educator I want to help empower the students I work with so they can help their communities thrive. I am a strong believer that education has the power to create sustainable growth from within our communities. I hope to play a small role in dismantling systems of oppression by helping students plan and achieve their academic goals. The students I work with daily have inspired me to continue my development and pursue a Masters degree in Education to help make higher education accessible.”
Meet Radha, recently graduated SJSU doctoral student and one of the leaders of Lurie College!
“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.”
