Abstract

Using life notes methodology (Dillard, 2006; Simmons, 2007), an earlier-career, Black female scholar in educational leadership chronicles her journey through obtaining her doctorate and transitioning to the professoriate at a Research I institution. In doing so, she highlights three “academic star” role models, shares her personal challenges, and offers three lessons about family, fit, and moving forward for other tenure-track faculty.
