Alan Enomoto, Ed.D.
Educational Leadership & Administration
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.
My first experience with Brandman* was when I was a special education teacher when my district paired up with them for an autism certificate. I liked it because I was able to still work and do everything else I needed to do.
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.
