SOLE Student Ambassador, Cheyenne Rabadia is in her last year of the MA in Counseling, School Counseling.

SOLES Alumna Spotlight: Melissa-Diaz Cisneros ‘06 (BA); ‘15 (MEd), Online MEd

Can you share a little bit about what you've been doing since graduating?
It's been a cool journey. This is my eighth year here in my school district, and I am now what's called an Impact Teacher. Our school has a high population of second language students and unfortunately, we have the lowest reading rate in the district because of that. I work with about 56 third through sixth-grade students on their reading and writing development. I meet with them every day; we work on phonics, sight words, and developing their reading level. In addition to working with my students, I am collecting data on their development. At the end of year, it's breathtaking to look at the data and see how far all my students have come. Over 98% of my students jumped two to three reading levels. I can also hear them as stronger, more confident readers. Oh, and their comprehension – wow!

We're so proud to share an announcement that Dr. Kelly Metz-Matthews '23 has been selected by the U.S. Department of State for a prestigious English Language Specialist Project. Starting this month, Dr. Metz-Matthews will be working virtually with Pakistan-based professional development coaches who will in turn support teachers of Afghan refugees across the country.

When asked about this highly regarded selection, Dr. Metz-Matthews said, "I couldn't be more thrilled to participate in this project. My previous experience as an English Language Fellow with the U.S. Department of State remains a highlight of my career.
