Designed to Help You Affect Change with Your Degree
“Teaching math for six years after graduation was truly the most transformational experience of my entire life. In many ways, I was born to be a teacher. Marist equipped me with the leadership skills I needed through practical experience. Now, I look to empower leaders and teachers throughout the country to revolutionize their thinking about what is possible in their school. There are so many capable students in every school, but too many never have the opportunity to realize their full potential. And I want to change that.”
