Lauren Ruderman Miller (Trinity '05)

"I spent the past four years teaching in DPS and was honored as my school’s Teacher of the Year in 2009. I credit the Program in Education for molding me into a reflective teacher who sets high-reaching goals and pursues skill-building development opportunities. This spring I made the heartwrenching decision to leave the classroom to pursue a graduate degree in Curriculum and Instruction at NCSU. One of the most unexpected benefits of returning to school has been working for the Program in Education as a Research Assistant. I am honing my analysis and evaluation skills as I work on NCATE licensure and program evaluation with Dr. Kristen Stephens."
