Q & A with Outstanding Student in Educational Psychology – Learning & Decision-Making in Leadership, Sara Dragan:
What are your future plans, goals, and dreams?
I plan to continue teaching and use my experience to potentially take on a team leader or department head position.
What is your favorite memory from your time in the College of Education and Human Development?
I loved walking around campus again and working with other students at all kinds of different positions in their careers. It’s nice to hear stories and perspectives from fellow educators, freshly-graduated undergrads, and career-switchers ready to go into educational psychology fields.
What advice do you have for fellow CEHD students?
It’s rare that you get to find a community of professors that are as passionate about your success as you are. Never be afraid to ask for advice or help, everyone wants to help you!
Would you like to give any shout-outs to those who supported you along the way?
I’m thankful for my family and fiancé for encouraging and supporting me every day, and all my professors for making the classes enjoyable and incredibly engaging!
