Dr. Tachua Vue

“The Ed.D. 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 for guidance and support."
