Having a master’s degree that focuses on the specific age group I teach has been extremely valuable to my employer, my students, and me. I am a better-prepared teacher and better able to meet students’ needs because of my coursework through Walden.
I am a first-generation college graduate. By earning my degree, I’ve set a positive example for my son. I know I’ve shown him that he can do anything.
