The lessons we learn in life are often catalyzed by events or happenings that we experience and that subsequently change us in some way. Life as a graduate student is replete with diverse experiences that mold and shape one‘s outlook on teaching, learning, and disciplined inquiry. As a doctoral candidate, my role as a novice researcher is increasingly budding with growth and my responsibilities to design and conduct research have engendered some important lessons. Often confined to private or classroom conversations with graduate students and faculty members, the lessons I have learned as a novice researcher seem worth sharing to a larger audience.
