What is your motivation for obtaining your degree?
I am currently an elementary school teacher and truly love my job. I want to further my experiences by eventually becoming a special education teacher. I think that being able to impact as many young lives as I can in a positive and supportive way will be a rewarding accomplishment.
Why did you choose Averett’s Graduate & Professional Studies Program?
An Averett representative came to our school to speak about the program. I had been considering when to take the leap back into school and they gave me that little push that I needed.
Please share one tip for your fellow classmates and future AU students:
Classes and responsibilities can become overwhelming for us all, but when you reach your goal you will feel a sense of satisfaction in yourself and be proud of your success, keep on keepin’ on! 🙂
What helps to keep you motivated while you are in the program?
Knowing that I will be using what I am learning to help young children that need me keeps me focused. Sometimes I feel like there is not enough time to get it all done, but when you have a passion for what you are learning and why, then you can find the motivation to complete it.
What is your anticipated Date of Graduation?
Averett University, Class of 2018!
