Please Don’t Call Me Dr. Rios

My decision to get a doctorate degree was a difficult decision to make. But one of the outcomes I never anticipated was how being called Dr. Rios would make me feel for the rest of my life.

In 2010, I decided on a fluke to take the GRE and apply to education leadership doctoral programs. I felt stuck in my career and believed, at the time, that a terminal degree would bring me closer to my professional goals.
