Chair, School of Education Development Board
At the William & Mary School of Education, bold and inventive thinking are at the heart of our work. Our faculty are partnering with school systems and working side-by-side with educators as we translate research to practice to make a real difference in the world.
Our students are embedded in schools and community agencies to gain relevant hands-on experience as they prepare to be future educators, counselors, leaders, researchers and advocates. We are the small school that thinks big. We have created a culture and framework to critically engage with the world and to ask tough questions about our roles as global educators. We continue to be a leader in nurturing students who possess the assets, fortitude and talent to be at the very forefront of transforming young lives.
Your investment in the School of Education propels our meaningful work. Through innovative and participatory teaching, scholarship and community engagement we are positioned to effectively solve complex educational problems.
Thank you for your support and dedication!
