Master of Science in Educational Leadership ‘03

Pursuing a Master of Science in Education (MSE) in reading education

Reading and math support teacher, Wrightstown Elementary School


“I recognized a long time ago that I am a lifelong learner. UW Oshkosh's program balances the instruction of skills and use of technological tools to provide an educational experience that enables its graduates to be successful teachers and leaders.

“Throughout the four years spent in the reading program, I have encountered knowledgeable faculty members who challenge and encourage me and provide meaningful learning opportunities that can be used immediately in classrooms.

“UW Oshkosh's accreditation with the International Reading Association and strong reputation within the Department of Public Instruction was also important. The combination of face-to-face and online classes also allowed for increased flexibility in my schedule.”
