What influenced your decision to go to graduate
How did you explore graduate
Do you have any tips related to
the application process?
I knew before I finished college that I wanted to go to graduate school
because I knew my education wasn’t done, and I wanted to continue
learning how to be a better teacher. GCC provided me with a strong
foundation but I still have a lot to learn. Getting my master’s degree
was always a priority, especially when going through the education
program with Dr. Nichols.
First I had to figure out what type of degree I wanted to obtain. I
knew that I needed to choose something I was interested in and wanted to
spend time (and money) investing in. Once I decided on the program, I
looked into schools that offered what I was looking for. I also visited
one of Penn State’s branch campuses when traveling for a job interview
to learn more about the program and all they had to offer. Once I had
the program I looked to see where campuses were located and I based my
job search on those locations.
Find an organizational system that works best for you and stick with
it. Being organized will help you through every step of the process.
