Why did you enroll in the Multicultural Education MA program?
I enrolled because it was a personal goal and also because of the great experience that I had with my undergraduate courses with the BMED professors.
How has the MA in Multicultural Education impacted and/or shaped your professional/personal goals?
At a personal level I wanted the MA because no one in my family has one. I am the first woman to attend a four year college and obtain a BA so I really wanted to prove to myself that I could do it. I also went back because there was a lot of change in my school district a lot of educational policies that I did not understand. I wanted to see how else I could help my students.
