“I get to apply the things I learned immediately especially when dealing with parents and colleagues. I feel this degree is very knowledge based and taught me how to lead successfully. You also learn a lot of do's and dont's in the program. It prepared me for the next level." -- Shawn Hoff, MEd EL Student
