Excerpt from Show

Mike Waters on the benefits of taking time to do research as an education professional:

Doing research and targeting it and then taking that data and actually applying it—it was a great experience that helped me focus on ideas that I had that I was never really able to concretely put down on paper or put into a thought process to focus all of it into a topic that I think I've been able to really get a handle on and move forward with, and get a grasp on how we want to keep it moving forward so it just doesn't end after these two years."
