  • Why the GSE?
    I am a Rutgers Alum. Being an Alum made Rutgers GSE my #1 choice. This was the only program I applied to.

    I aspire to create a body of research that can be actualized by school administrators and teachers in K-12 urban school districts by providing them with a road map that will guide them in policy & instructional planning to meet the needs of Black and Latinx students.
