Ways to Learn
Ways to Get Started
My first experience with Brandman* was when I was a special education teacher. My district paired up with Brandman* for an autism certificate. I liked it because I was able to still work and do everything else I needed to do. I liked the way the program was – the online component plus in-face classes.
The MAELA program was beyond invaluable. So much of what I was asked to do was relatable to my job. The people affiliated with the program know what works in education.
I started the program because I knew I wanted to lead with a job that had more responsibility and would have more impact. I've reached my goal. Five years later, I am a Doctor of Education, a better leader and person and my school districts and students have benefited from my improved leadership.
The MAELA program was rigorous, but the professors and staff were incredibly supportive, flexible and helpful as we moved throughout our 20 months together. I have graduated my program with the confidence to go out into the world of education and be a knowledgeable educational leader.
