“My school has gone from less than 5 percent involvement by parents and communities in our events to over 50 percent now consistently. My work through University of Phoenix and my research has really had a strong impact there.”

Sara Mendoza

“I have been a farm worker, a warehouse employee for a paint factory, a hairdresser, a waitress, an IT tech and an education specialist. But there is something about being a teacher — working with kids and seeing them grow in their education — that is just awesome.

Andy Townsend

“At University of Phoenix, there were great people who supported me, but the beauty of my education was I was having wonderful experiences in the classroom. And, on Saturdays I was learning from other people in similar situations. We would problem-solve together.”
