A Message from Jonathan Gillette, Dean of the Graduate School of Education
On Saturday, May 17, our Graduate School of Education celebrated Commencement at the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion in Boston. In this edition of our enewsletter, there are links to portions of the ceremony and articles related to our inspiring speakers and honorees.
On behalf of Lesley’s faculty and staff, I extend congratulations to all of our graduates. For those of you receiving an initial teaching degree, you have had a taste of what a gift it is to have a group of young people look to you, and trust you, as their teacher. Honor that gift. Treasure that trust. Never take it for granted. Persist. The work is challenging and mastery takes time. Embrace that complexity. For those receiving an advanced degree, returning to or continuing in a variety of settings, carry your new learning proudly. Advocate for and articulate persistently for the value of deep study in this field. Most importantly, tell as many as you can how and in what specific ways this new knowledge has directly impacted the lives of specific students. Finally, to our new graduates and all of our alumni, stay in touch. Never underestimate your continued importance to us. Our work is only realized through your work, and we stand ready to support you, advocate for you, and deepen your ability as a professional. We are proud to be teachers. We are proud of you as our colleagues. We know what value you bring to your communities. We can’t wait for our new graduates of the Class of 2014 to begin. Best wishes, Jack GilletteDean, Graduate School of Education
