Why did you choose to attend UT Tyler?
I chose UT Tyler because they offered a program that I knew could hold my interests related to my field and would be flexible enough for my normal work and social life.
What are your career goals and how does your graduate program support them?
Upon graduation I hope to continue my career in education by pursing a career as an instructional coach. UT Tyler provides opportunities to specialize in this area and to gain practice as a coach through mock coaching interviews and coaching relationship between peers and our professors. I love having the opportunity to put these skills into practice and not simply read about them.
What do you like most about UT Tyler?
I love the ability to take all of my class online. Even when there is an exam or an assignment where I must meet with a peer or the professor, there is always an option to do so through online technology. I appreciate the opportunity to matriculate through graduate school at a pace that works perfectly with my schedule.
