Amy Poerschke, M.Ed. ’14

I really think that because of the small class sizes and high-quality professors, I was able to get a lot of individualized feedback about my writing. That set me up for success, not only to be a principal but to go into a doctoral program.

Lizette Vasquez, M.Ed. ’15

My experience as a student was unforgettable. The rigor of the classes was high but it helped push me in so many ways that prepared me to experience what it would be like to be a school counselor.
