"Teaching at Roma High School in Roma, Texas (on Texas/Mexico border) would be considered challenging by many, for the simple fact that nearly all of the students here are considered at-risk, but what I learned through Duke’s Program in Education was that these challenges also provide a chance for success.  Thanks to the training and preparation of the Secondary Teacher Preparation Program at Duke University, I have always felt equipped to meet the challenges I’ve encountered in the classroom.  I plan to continue my graduate studies in education starting in the fall of 2010."
