There is a delicate balance a supervisor must walk when supervising. You have to be a leader, yet open to suggestions and willing to set the example. You have to be an educator without making people feel unintelligent. One must also be a motivator without being an authoritarian. I watched Christina over the two years of working under her apply this balancing act successfully among a diverse group of people. She flowed seamlessly between academia, departments of corrections, and community organizations to launch and maintain the moving parts of the Justice-in-Education Initiative. Working with Christina was more than a learning experience, she helped me to grow professionally and as person, this is why I count her as a colleague and a friend.
