My academic advisor was a great support system. He was my advisor throughout my master’s program and he took the time to learn about me personally so we could make the best schedule to accommodate my life.
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.
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.
