"Investigating problems of practice in a cohort setting while pursing my EdD was a perfect fit. This became particularly serendipitous when I transitioned from the classroom to a district position that presented other inquiry opportunities."

 

About Janet

Janet Larson earned her EdD in Educational Studies in 2014 from the University of Nebraska Lincoln.  She pursued this degree and program because she had questions she could not answer in her practice and wanted to immerse herself in more opportunities to answer these questions. Her degree has broadened her view for making leadership decisions. She examines the intricacies of situations to better understand the theoretical, political, and practical ramifications for various stakeholders.

 

Advice for prospective EdD students

Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself. As practitioners in the 21st century, we must undertake advanced study to generate new knowledge and become stewards for our students and ourselves. Embrace the ambiguity and complexity of education while learning alongside others. It is only through constructive struggle that educators are able to grow and become better advocates.
