Tess Carroll’s Testimonial
“ I think the fellowship program is a fantastic program! I am amazed that they found a way to squeeze a whole Master’s program into only one year! The program is very rigorous and time-consuming, considering I “work” full-time in a high school and I take graduate classes at night. However, I love that I will be able to go into teaching next fall with a Master’s in Education. This year will be the hardest and longest year of my life, but it will be completely worth coming next June!”
