The graduate program in education for secondary educators has been one of the most beneficial educational experiences of my career. My role as an assistant principal at a Catholic School in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles has been enhanced through earning my masters at Mount St. Mary’s. The advisors, faculty and staff make the process easy, recognizing an individual’s commitments to family and work. The community at Mount St. Mary’s ensures that students are supported while meeting the obligations of a demanding practical program based on the most current subject matter and theory in education. There couldn’t be a better program to achieve the professional requirements that educators need for the day-to-day of being a teacher in the Los Angeles area.
