With the June 1 application deadline coming up quickly, Dr. Lisa M. Edwards (Educational Administration '15) Principal, Century Academy for Excellence, Inglewood, shares her experience of the Educational Administration master's program.
"Having previously co-founded and directed a charter high school in South L.A. (2008-2011), this program provided me with much-needed, invaluable training and information in multiple leadership areas including curriculum & instruction, HR, employee relations, finance and operations, and successful implementation of transformational strategies. As a result of the EDAD program, today, as principal, I am empowered with a wealth of tools, strategies and information to ensure collaborative, democratic, and highly effective leadership and decision-making. I enjoyed so many things about the EDAD program, but I especially enjoyed the education law class [as] well as reading Crucial Conversations with Professor "Sparkle" Peterson. I learned so much from both of these classes, and I find myself referencing things learned in class almost on a daily basis."
