“Participating in the curriculum and teaching master’s program at BGSU helped me to further develop my skills in my own classroom. Through an understanding of the curriculum, as well as an understanding of early childhood development, I was able to transfer over best-practice strategies for the benefit of my students.”

Kelley Coronado - Whitehouse Primary, Second Grade

“For anyone considering the program at BGSU, I say go for it! Every professor I had was open, flexible, and intelligent. They answered all of my questions and I felt a sense of community even though it was entirely online. I learned a lot that could directly apply to my teacher life. I enjoyed participating in classes and had a wonderful advisor who helped me the entire way!”
