What is your motivation for obtaining your degree?
The opportunities that will and have opened from obtaining a degree in Administration and Supervision was my initial motivation. The GPS program is designed for advancement into administration, but also offers opportunities to define your skills as a teacher leader.
Why did you choose Averett’s Graduate & Professional Studies Program?
I was previously enrolled in another university’s program. However, when I researched Averett’s GPS Program for Supervision and Administration, I was highly impressed with the overall rigor, scope and sequence that Averett was offered compared to where I was enrolled, that I transferred. Not to mention, I received my first master’s with Averett’s GPS program in Curriculum and Instruction.
Please share one tip for your fellow classmates and future AU students:
You will have to make sacrifices, but in the end, they will make up for themselves…so stay the course.
What helps to keep you motivated while you are in the program?
I made a close friend in my cohort and he was a collegial support throughout the program. We could confide in each other when things were tough, which helped us both out. (Thanks, John!)
