I am pursuing a Doctor of Education degree from the University of Portland in Oregon. I have 10 years of teaching experience in a variety of settings, including adult/homeless education (GED and Reading classes), public and private high schools (English/Literature/Writing, World Religions and Morality classes), middle school special education, and teaching English as a foreign language. I am from the beautiful Pacific Northwest in the United States, but have also lived in Nashville, New Mexico, Washington, DC, La Paz, Bolivia, and Panama City, Panama.
The intention of this blog is to provide a forum for discussion of Education topics and provide a network of support for Doctor of Education and other graduate students. I hope it encourages others while also encouraging me to persevere through the ups and downs, walking away with a degree in hand: La Doctora. The Doctor.
