- About Us
I am a non-traditional student that is also a military veteran. I see myself as investing in not only my future and my family's future, but the future of society as well. I believe in the old adage that it takes a village to raise a child.
Why did you choose UW-Parkside?
I chose Parkside because of the smaller class sizes and the one-on-one interaction I could receive from the professors. I was also very impressed that the teacher education program introduces students to the classroom with a co-teaching model in the first class. The clinical placement with a hands-on approach to learning is why I chose Parkside.
What have you enjoyed most about UW-Parkside?
I have enjoyed my clinical experiences in the education program and that the department and advising are committed to making sure that I graduate on time. I also enjoyed that the entire campus is enclosed when I have to walk from class to class.
What would you say to someone considering UW-Parkside?
I would tell them to enroll at Parkside because the professors and instructors in the Education Department are not just my teachers; they are also mentors in helping me become the best professional educator I can be.
