2017 Graduate of the Year, Master of Education in Educational Administration
As an educator working in public, private, and international settings, Acacia University’s online platform provided me with a convenient way to advance my knowledge and career regardless of where I lived. The challenging coursework of the Master of Education in Educational Administration and the small and dedicated cohort pushed me to grow beyond my comfort zone. Now in my twelfth year in education, I serve as the Dean of Students and Curriculum Director at an independent school in the St. Louis, Missouri area. I am confident in my knowledge and experience to continue leading students to reach their highest potential.
2016 Graduate of the Year, Master of Arts in Secondary Education
My journey so far with Acacia University has been an exceptionally rewarding and life changing experience. I have been immensely inspired by the most incredible team of instructors, whose consistent care, kindness, support, encouragement, patience, extraordinarily immaculate feedback, and motivating mentorship can never be overstated. I have also met, worked with, and learned from a group of brilliant, enthusiastic, and dedicated learners from all over the world who all share one goal – making a difference! I have not only learned countless new strategies, but have also gained the tools to fine tune and improve my instruction. As I continue my journey now in the Educational Leadership Doctorate Program, I am constantly reminded of my passionate belief that we are all lifelong learners. Thank you Acacia University for this incredible honor and ongoing opportunities to develop and grow.
