  28. Reflections… I am a wife. I am a sister. I am a daughter. I am a student. I am an educator.

  29. Reflection “ As I listened to the professor and more seasoned graduate students, I wondered, what am I doing here? Say that word again? And where is my dictionary? Many of these terms were new to me and I began to second guess my decision to pursue this degree.” -Kamania Wynter-Hoyte
