I spent 10+ years as a classroom teacher in multiple capacities. The skills I developed throughout my journey at Mount Union propelled me to become a leader, both inside the classroom and out. I learned how to lead with empathy and inspire those around me to reach their goals. In 2020, I was given the opportunity to join Nearpod and have been with this educational technology company for over two years. I am looking forward to concluding my doctorate and would like to continue in a leadership capacity in educational technology.
The Impact of Mount Union
I was a part of the first Master of Education cohort that Mount Union offered. Without Mount Union I simply would not be where I am today. While my time as an undergraduate student helped to lay the groundwork, the Master of Education program cemented the foundational skills necessary to be a competitve candidate in the busy edtech market. My experiences at Mount set me apart from my peers and have helped to carve a new professional pathway in the educational field. If you want to springboard your professional career in education, this program is for you.
Mount's Personal Touch
I had considered a number of different graduate programs initially, but decided on Mount because the value of their program outshined the rest. Most notable was the committment by the professors for each member of the cohort to reach their goal. That personal touch is a marked tenet of the Mount Union education department. You're more than a number at Mount; you're family. Mount Union's Master of Education program merges the communal sense of a small university with robust and industry-leading academics.
