Physics and math teacher, New Berlin West High School
“I’ve always valued learning new things. As a result, I knew that receiving my bachelor’s degree wasn’t the end of my academic journey. In order to succeed in my career and be the best teacher I can be for my students, I needed to continue to grow as an educator. Pursuing a graduate degree was a natural step.
“I decided to return to UW Oshkosh for graduate school because of my familiarity with the campus, its programs and the highly skilled faculty and staff. Tailored to provide meaningful instruction to working professionals, UWO’s unique program in physics education fit my needs perfectly.
“My graduate courses have had small class sizes, allowing me to work closely with my instructors. I’ve also had the opportunity to work collaboratively with professionals in my field, providing invaluable networking opportunities.”
