Name: Kisha K. Timberlake

Major: EdD Educational Leadership                

Hometown: Sanford, NC

Hobbies/interests: Prince and all things Purple! 

Professor who influenced you the most: Dr. Karen Jones has really given me the encouragement and confidence I needed to successfully complete my dissertation. She believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself. 

Favorite place on campus: I really love the new student center. I first graduated from ECU “many” years ago and I have loved seeing all the updates and changes around campus that have taken place over the years. 

An ECU memory you would like to share: Connecting and bonding with my cohort members. At the start of the program, you don’t really know what to expect or who you might meet, so just building those relationships over time has been my favorite part of this experience. 

Post-graduation plans: I can’t believe I’m saying this but write more articles and do more research! There’s so many more topics I would love to explore. I definitely want to keep working on ways to improve K-12 education in our state.
