Ed.D, a professional practice degree for educational leaders
Dr. John Hannigan
The DPELFS program has changed the way I think and look at systems as a leader. It has given me the tools to make an impact on education beyond my own school setting to reach students throughout the valley and beyond. Dr. John Hannigan, 2015

The DPELFS program challenged me to be a better leader.  It provided me with the tools and knowledge to make a difference in education.  I utilize the research skills and practices from this program to build systems that will have a positive impact on student achievement.  And, a huge benefit of this program was the relationships developed with colleagues and faculty that I still network and reach out to for guidance and support.
