"Con todo mi corazón": Mentoring Latinas in Educational Leadership Doctoral Programs
Rodríguez, Mariela A.
Association of Mexican American Educators Journal, v10 n3 p30-46 2016
Personal narrative essays were used to analyze the experiences of four Latina doctoral students who completed their first year in an educational leadership doctoral program in a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI) in the southwestern U.S. Four themes emerged from their "testimonios" 1) "Con todo el corazón"; 2) "Somos como una familia"; 3) "Hermanas" aren't just doing it for themselves; and 4) "Echando pa'lante." These themes demonstrate tenets of Latina/o educational leadership through the community-mentoring practices described in the study.
