Truth & Education

Alum, NDMU Class of 2010 Education

Notre Dame's motto is about truth and the pursuit of truth. To that end, Notre Dame has taught me the irreplaceable, immutable, and incomparable value of truth and education.

Notre Dame prepared me for engagement with the educational world by inculcating my mind with the most current research and best practices in respective areas of education. The university also taught me how to be a reflective practitioner, which allows me to perform my own professional development on the way to becoming a better teacher.
