Why did you choose the College of Education for your degree/credential program?
Since I completed my undergraduate classes at Sac state I became familiar with the education department and in particular the Bilingual Multicultural Education Department. The professors shared with me their approach and through the courses I realized I found different answers and solutions to problems I saw in education.
How has your degree/credential impacted your professional and personal life?
The masters program opened my eyes to the changes in education I can make. I gained a new insight on our educational system and the inequities existing in education that need to be made for students of color.
