Today marked the end of our first year in the Ed.D. program at VCU. It was great to have the three sites back together again. The most enjoyable part of the day was sharing our culminating ethical projects with one another. I was truly impressed by the sheer talent, creativity and intellect displayed by my classmates. It is clear to see why my colleagues are part of this doctoral program. The quality of analysis and synthesis of what we have learned during this semester came through loud and clear. The scenarios created and presented by my classmates demonstrated our understanding of the content in a highly compelling manner. I am extremely honored to be part of the Class of 2014 Ed.D. Cohort. Keep up the amazing work everyone.
