Dr. Don Schillinger, current Interim Chair of the Department of Curriculum, Instruction, and Leadership, did not always plan to be a teacher. He did not always plan to be at Louisiana Tech. But “everything happens for a reason,” and he explains why in this episode. Don recounts his days learning and growing and discovering his passion for teaching. He talks about buying in to leadership roles in Louisiana Tech’s College of Education and Human Sciences, and he discusses the thought process behind the College’s recent name change. He also touches on why Ruston and Louisiana Tech have been perfect for his family and why the College he serves is a special place.
