Open, Ready, Curious: Cynthia Grutzik, Dean of Education
Be open, ready, curious -- this is Cynthia Grutzik’s life motto, and it has served her well. Cynthia lived the first 14 years of her life in Cameroon, Africa, which has greatly shaped her understanding of the world. She is currently a Dean at San Francisco State University, and she had her first teaching job in Cameroon where she learned how to prioritize the needs of her students. Listen to hear how her unique upbringing impacts the way she approaches her job now in terms of being patient, interacting with students, and expressing gratitude.
