"I strongly recommend Dr. Bearman for her hard work and innovative programs. I have been fortunate to collaborate with her for years.  I find her energy, passion, and creativity visionary as she engages her students through experiential learning. My law students have been fortunate to work with Dr. Bearman in her classrooms teaching law related curriculum. During the lessons the youth have developed critical thinking skills regarding their rights, and I appreciate how the schools have been supportive of our partnerships. Thank you for these opportunities -- I am hopeful they will continue."
