Her passion for diversity and social justice in children’s literature and technology equity in education led her to this program. The cornerstone of Jacqueline’s career has been sharing the love of literature and ensuring equitable digital access for students, which she plans to study further in this doctoral program. She was able to connect with students in Wisconsin during her time in South Africa to enhance their classroom learning. In addition, Jacqueline has volunteered in Peru, the Bahamas, Japan, Ghana, and Costa Rica.
