Putting Ideas & Theories into Action

Alum, NDMU Class of 2018 Teaching (MAT in 10 Months)

The GEI program structures the courses and student teaching in a way that allowed me to see the ideas and theories from my coursework put into action in the classrooms at my placement schools. I was able to develop knowledge and experiences with help from mentors, professors, coaches, and other students.

Dylan teaches English at Chesapeake High School in Pasadena, MD.
