"(Going back to school after 10 years of teaching) was a chance to help others through their journey—and my own.
Every single day, I get to be involved in kids’ lives as a support, a sounding board, a kick-in-the-pants helping them re-examine their priorities.
A friendly face that makes them laugh, a calm presence in their moment of chaos, and someone who is always on their side.
There is no greater privilege than this. This is my profession, this is my passion.”
— Rhonda Williams, a successful UCCS College of Education grad.
