On Pursuing a Master’s in Elementary Education

I chose a career in education because: It is something I have always wanted to do. I love being around children and being part of a school.

I am so proud that: Someone from a small ski town in Colorado can make it in NYC. My friends thought I would be back in Colorado within a month.

My advice: It’s never too late to start a new career.

A takeaway from my degree: Although some children learn differently or have more difficulty learning, they still deserve the same chance as the next child. Don’t give up on any child.
