I enjoyed working with a cohort. It allowed me to make personal and professional relationships with other social studies teachers both in my area and across the state. I continue to be in contact with most people in my cohort 3 years after the program has ended.
Receiving my masters degree through UNI was amazing. The small cohort made it easy to get to know each other as well as the professors. I loved being able to talk with other teachers in the field and listen to their struggles and triumphs in the classroom. Having the classes after work hours made it nice so we wouldn't have to miss work.
