The Education and Social Change program at UM has provided me an opportunity to reflect on my positionality in the education system and encouraged me to be intentional in my participation. Although the current architecture of the system provides many challenges for students and teachers alike, my colleagues and professors have worked together to find a means to exercise our agency to make positive changes for our students and ourselves.

Being exposed to the variety of ways people think about education and education policy was helpful. Having professors with a range of experiences as teachers, working in the district, and as academics gave me a set of new lenses to see educational issues.

The Education and Social Change program pushed my development as a teacher in a manner that I did not foresee. Given that education is a social right for all students, the perspectives challenged and brought out in the program have transformed my pedagogy.
