Questions and Answers

  • My favorite part about working at Grand View is getting to know our students and creating new opportunities for them.  I am the advisor for our Bilingual Education Student Organization (BESO), though I don't consider myself bilingual. It is richly satisfying to spend time with students learning about culture, and attending conferences around the US.
