  • Dr. Bosso believes that,
    “Encouraging students to become more aware of the world around them, to realize
    and appreciate multiple sides to every story and every issue, and to begin to
    get a better sense of their potential as global citizens, are fundamental to the
    work we do as educators.”
  • Dr. Bosso emphasizes that, “Good teachers are driven by a
    sense of moral purpose, and they have a keen appreciation for the difference
    they can make in students’ lives….They know that many times, it is paying
    attention to the little things that will pay important relational dividends —
    and this can mean the world to some students.”
