Meet Saul, SJSU staff member and one of the leaders of Lurie College!
“In the 4th grade, I was given an award for “perseverance”. At the time, I did not know what the term meant. Fast forward to today, I would say that I overcame a lot of adversity, especially being a first-generation student. As students, we owe it to ourselves to try hard and go after what we want, despite the difficulties. In the end we gain life experiences and we become more resilient, all because we chose to never give up. The 4th grade version of myself would be extremely proud of me today.”
The Connie L.

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.”
