It’s not often in people’s lives they get the chance to make a real difference in our profession. They try, but often come up short or lack the motivation to begin in the first place. Assistant Professor of Athletic Training and Doctor Christianne Eason is not one of these people.

Last spring, Associate Professor and Di- rector of Education Dr. Claudia Rinaldi was invited to speak about the Pathways to Teacher Diversity (PTD) program on New England Cable News’s (NECN) CEO Corner. Started in 2016, the pilot program hopes to diversify the pool of teaching candidates so it better reflects the increasingly diverse classrooms in American public schools today.
