Where Are They Now? Meet alumni of USF's Catholic Education Leadership EdD program.
USF prepared me to be a confident, empathetic leader with a commitment to promoting a fair and just society for all. I recognize the importance of community and placing the needs of those on the margins at the forefront of decision-making. My USF education formed both my heart and my mind to remain committed to ensuring accessible, quality education to all who wish to access Catholic schools.

The Catholic Educational Leadership program of the USF School of Education helped me gain friends and expand my network. More than having more polished skills to better run organizations, the program gave the opportunity to reflect and reimagine the human context of education. As I was able to earn the degree and return to my country at the beginning of the pandemic, the program equipped me to deepen the human endeavor of learning in our schools in these interesting times.

My degree from USF has helped me grow in becoming a better Catholic school leader and teacher. I have developed greater written and oral communication skills, sharpened my classroom teaching practices, and continue to cultivate loving student-teacher relationships founded in Christ."
