What drew you to St. Mark’s?
I looked into various Master’s Programs and heard good things about St. Mark’s programs from other teachers and friends.
How did you benefit from your studies?
Personally, I grew closer to my family due to their constant support and encouragement. Professionally, I found a lot of what I learned was immediately applicable to my teaching.
Academically, I seemed to pick up where I left off as a student, although learning seemed to take a little longer.
I thought that because I was raised Catholic, attended a Catholic school, and work in the Catholic school system, I would already know and understand a great deal; however, I learned so much more, not only about Church teachings, but also about my personal faith formation. I also met great people and formed at least two life-long friendships. I enjoy sharing my personal and professional experiences from St. Mark’s.
