I chose Adelphi because
I knew that Adelphi would be a place where I could learn educational theory and apply that knowledge in a real-life setting.
Besides Adelphi, I am balancing
a rewarding career at Year Up, a nationally recognized nonprofit organization that serves urban young adults between the ages of 18 and 24.
I chose a career in education because
I wanted to help cultivate the limitless talent and creativity that our young people possess. As a product of African-American/Dominican heritage, I have seen what it can be like for a student of color in the education system, especially in an urban environment with limited resources.
I like Adelphi’s program because
it’s honest. Adelphi gives me a platform to discuss issues, trends and experiences that I have endured as an educator, as well as exchange ideas with my fellow colleagues who are currently working or have worked in the field.
My mantra is:
