Student and Faculty Spotlights
Graduate student Charline Tenorio represented her peers as one of the student speakers at the Spring 2021 SJSU Lurie College of Education Graduation Celebration. Watch Charline's remarks beginning at 27:22 of the video above.
Marcella McCollum was featured in the SJSU story "Transforming the Way We Teach" which focused on many of our Lurie College of Education's Strategic Plan initiatives, including our Transformative Leadership Minor that Marcella coordinates.
“We need to think about changing paradigms,” says McCollum. “We cannot just offer a class or textbook that tells you how to overcome the challenges that exist in our current educational systems as they are designed. We want students to question why things are the way they are. We want them to have the tools, so they can push back when something looks unjust.”
