How has education changed your life/your family?
As a true lifelong learner, I have always loved learning and education. Through education, I’ve been able to transform myself over the decades, from a counselor to a community college teacher; from a teacher to a faculty developer; from a faculty developer to a researcher and writer about how we can design learning activities so that all students can be successful.
