Master of Education in Teacher Leadership
Pittsgrove Township Board of Education, Kindergarten teacher

Having my Master’s degree will give me more opportunities in the education field. It will also allow me to become a better teacher for my students. I liked the sequence of courses offered, the location, and the price. I felt I could fit it into my schedule even though I am full-time teacher. The coursework better fits my lifestyle than the traditional format. Classes are once a week and only 8 weeks as opposed to 16 weeks. I feel I am able to accomplish a lot through the coursework and also network with area teachers.

In the future, I hope to become a literacy coach. This degree will give me a wide range of experience in reading and teach me the important aspects of become a reading specialist.
