Teri Wilkins

Life-long learner. Educator. Thinker.


Teresa was my department chairperson at Our Lady of Mount Carmel High School. She consistently distinguished herself as a conscientious and energetic pioneer in the fields of leadership and management in the classroom. Teri is a dynamic teacher. I have enormous respect for her teaching and leadership skills, and I am very pleased to have worked under her supervision.

Today was the 162nd commencement for Loyola University MD, and I was hooded by the chair of my dissertation committee, Dr. Ralph Piedmont. This was my fourth degree from Loyola, making me a quadruple Greyhound.


The ceremony was loooong, but it was lovely, and Mark Shriver did a fine job as commencement speaker. It was fun to see the other members of my cohort get hooded as well.

Afterwards, my family went to our favorite neighborhood restaurant for lunch, and then we came back home and took some more pictures. No, I did not wear the cap and gown while we were eating.



I have some additional good news to share: I accepted a position as a visiting assistant professor at Loyola. I will be teaching Human Development, Ethics, and a clinical class. I will continue to work at my community clinic and see patients.

I have been told that after completing a doctoral degree, many students experience a kind of “let down.” That hasn’t happened. If anything, I feel even more excited about the journey ahead.
