It is quite interesting to reflect on my experience in graduate school and the growth that I have achieved. Although this is likely true for many, it is especially so for me since I took my first graduate-level course during my student-teaching internship year. Therefore, by the end of the 2012-2013 school year, and before I even began my teaching career, I had already earned some credits towards a master's degree; however, I wanted to gain professional experience prior to continuing my education. After three years of teaching, I decided to pursue my Master of Arts in Education (MAED) degree through Michigan State University. I was accepted into MSU's MAED program and started taking courses in August 2016. In the end, this degree is the culmination of years of growth and development. I started as a new, student-teacher intern, and I finish as an effective, experienced educator.
