Graduation Year: 2014
Employer: CompleteCare

Dr. Angela Valdez

Degree(s): Doctor of Education (EdD)
Graduation Year: 2012
Employer: Harrison School District 2
Job Title: Principal

“My employer values my education from Walden because of the level of knowledge and expertise I brought from the teacher leadership program. From the courses I took and the relationships I built, I brought a new perspective to our campus and district. And the research I conducted on English language learners informed new practices within our building.”

Anthony Price

Degree(s): Master of Business Administration (MBA), Doctor of Business Administration (DBA
Graduation Year: 2013
Employer: Hub Group
Job Title: Site manager

“I recognized that I didn’t want to drive [a delivery truck] for the rest of my life and knew that with a higher degree I would be able to move into management. Through my coursework, I learned how to research and improve work processes to achieve even greater success. It’s already paying off for me. I communicate and delegate better, and I’m more confident interacting with my co-workers and direct reports. My manager even told me I’ve become a better leader.”

Grace Lasker

Degree(s): PhD in Public Health
Graduation Year: 2012
Employer: University of Washington Bothell
Job Title: Teaching professor and Director of Health Studies

“Because of my PhD in Public Health from Walden, I was able to propose a new bachelor’s degree at my technical college. It is now a pathway for students with associate degrees to start as juniors in my public health program. It is a hands-on, technical workforce education-focused program, which is very unique in this country, and it is the only bachelor’s degree in public health that scaffolds on allied health associate degrees that I am aware of.”

Gail Favors

Degree(s): MS in Early Childhood Studies (Tempo Learning®)
Graduation Year: 2020
Employer: Red Clay Consolidated School District
Job Title: Teacher of the deaf, family advocate, TeenSHARP mentor

“Having completed my master’s through Tempo Learning®, I am able to continue to support my department as the lead teacher of the deaf and create appropriate brochures for our early intervention/preschool program. The experience and knowledge that I gained offered me the opportunity to create this much-needed resource for our district. The learning competencies were well-developed with materials rich in content. I also gained a wealth of detail that I shared with colleagues and families regarding early childhood educational programming.”

Kandi Georges

Degree(s): BS in Business Administration (Tempo Learning®)

“Tempo Learning® worked well for me, because of the flexibility and the ability for me to work as quickly as possible. I also liked that I wasn’t held to deadlines or held back by my peers or instructors. I could work through the night if I needed to, or even on holidays. I also liked that I could add additional classes as my time permitted.”
