I am so grateful for the opportunity that the GSEHD afforded me. Thanks to the School’s degree programs, I was able to combine my interests in education and foreign affairs to learn how to better effect positive change in education in both a domestic an international context. Thanks for broadening my horizons and preparing me for service!

Dr. Lois F. Berlin
Interim Superintendent
Alexandria City Public Schools
I started work in the Alexandria City Public Schools as a preschool teacher the year I completed my GSEHD program and earned my master's degree. That was in 1980! The program prepared me well for my work with young children with special needs. Now I have returned after a 13-year separation from Alexandria and its good to be back where I spent 24 rich and fulfilling years of my career.

The School Counseling program offered me superb classroom instruction strengthened by practical training. I interned in DC Public Schools, improved my counseling skills in GSEHD’s Community Counseling Center and landed a great position working as a high school counselor for low-income, first-generation, college bound students.
