The opportunity to complete Graduate/Certification Programs at Saint Francis University was invaluable to me both professionally and personally. Engaging in inspiring courses, networking with progressive educators from local school districts, and practical educational
experiences enabled me to gain knowledge in the field that could be immediately applied at the district-level to help students, parents, and those professionals who strive to help them. My teachers and mentors from SFU inspired me to be an active, resourceful and supportive professional.
I now embrace opportunity to work with amazing students through Graduate Courses and Certification Programming, facilitating learning opportunities and experiences to prepare future educational leaders. I proudly report that in most school districts and educational programs you will find several SFU graduates, and many educational leaders. It is my sincerest hope that these professionals will seize the rewarding opportunity to "pay forward" as instructors and mentors for Saint Francis University.
