Elizabeth Caron (MA Sociology, 2009)
"I likely had an unusual experience with the program. I started taking graduate seminars before I graduated with my Bachelors (also in Sociology). So when I was accepted into the Masters program as a Teaching assistant, I was able to start teaching my own first class the 2nd semester since I had already completed graduate credits. Thus, I was able to teach for three semesters. Obviously this is something I enjoyed and I decided to continue teaching both college as an adjunct and, eventually, high school. I am extremely thankful for my experience but especially to Dr. Branaman for steering me to the graduate program as well as for her guidance, and to Dr. Wilson for introducing me to the dark world that is quantitative analysis and for shaping my view of the world.
I am currently teaching AICE Global Perspectives and Research AS & A levels, and AP Seminar & AP Research at John I Leonard High School. I completed my EdD in Postsecondary and Higher Education in 2005. Most recently, I was nominated for the Palm Beach County Dwyer award for senior education. "
