Meet DeAnte, recently graduated SJSU grad student and one of the leaders of Lurie College!
“After working four incredible years at a Title I elementary school, I realized it is imperative that educators attract young students to the idea that education offers the best chance to reach limitless possibilities. My experience with the Lurie College of Education has provided a platform for me to inspire young children in a classroom setting and be living proof that with an education, opportunities are limitless.”

“I believe that education is the foundation of success. As I become an educator, I want to make a difference in education. I believe that all children should receive the best education available to them regardless of their socioeconomic status or their race. This is why I want to become a counselor and work with high school students who live in low-income communities to motivate, inspire and to encourage students to strive for success.”

Meet Edith, SJSU undergraduate student and one of the leaders of Lurie College!
“Education has always played an important role in my life. Since I began volunteering with teachers at ten years old, I become a regular volunteer with a first grade teacher at my elementary school. As I got older she allowed me to teach her class a few times which was when I knew that I wanted to become an elementary school teacher. Here at SJSU I have found many resources and opportunities to achieve that goal and the encouragement to reach my long-term goal of becoming Secretary of Education.”
