Reimagining Educational Leadership Through Technology
Read the Experiences of Students from the Program
Michelle Snyder, a mother of three, says the program is a perfect fit for her. Not only is she able to take her classes online from home, she can also apply what she learns to her current position as an English teacher at an accredited high school that offers online and blended learning.
“I’m learning the same way my students learn,” she said. “It really has changed the way I teach. The class is a good balance of technology, pedagogy, and leadership.”
Ulises Cisneros ,second-grade Spanish-immersion teacher, noted, “It’s been an amazing experience getting to start from the beginning. ”
"This program really makes us think big-picture,” Cisneros said. “We think far into the future, not just the near future. It helps us become better leaders in education.”
