William During portrait

We love to hear success stories about our alumni! Alumnus William During ’89 studied with the late Professor Candace Bos in 1980 as a graduate student in learning disabilities. After earning a master’s degree, he branched into bilingual special education, working with Professor Emeritus Arminda Fuentevilla, and earned a second master’s degree in educational administration. For more than 30 years, he has worked with ethnic language minority students and is an ESL teacher with Bridgeport Public Schools Adult Education in Connecticut. He writes, “I owe a considerable amount of my success to my work at the University of Arizona. Thank you, and keep up the good work.”
