Meet a New Graduate Fellowship Recipient

How will this scholarship help you?
After years of staying home to raise four children on one salary, I entered graduate school. This scholarship relieved some of the pressure of paying for school on top of taking care of my family. It makes the plan to obtain a master's degree much more feasible.
What is your favorite part about UT Tyler?
My fellow classmates in the online program are from all parts of the U.S.and world. They have a wealth of experience and knowledge to share. I also appreciate that everyone on campus that I have spoken to has been very friendly and helpful.
What is your goal after graduation?
Renew my teaching certification so that I can get back into a high school classroom or even move on to a junior college or university position.
