The MA TESOL program from Arkansas Tech University was the perfect fit for me. While living abroad and working full-time, I was able to complete the program in one year. The platform was easy to use and provided me a seamless connection with both classmates and professors. At Arkansas Tech University, I was able to develop a strong foundation of teaching methods and theories.

I came into this job very well prepared for what I do here in Morocco. My courses at Arkansas Tech gave me the tools I needed to teach the full range of courses I have been assigned here. I constantly find myself using the theory and practical applications I learned in my classes in order to understand my students better and to teach them more effectively. Literally every single course that I took in the TESOL program at Tech had some element that I have put to use in teaching my own courses. Thank you again for an excellent program that prepared me exceptionally well to be here. I'm living my dream!

My TESOL degree has given me new compassion for ELLs and new passion for teaching them as well. I have learned so much in a short time, and I hope to incorporate many of the strategies and principles I have learned into my 10th grade English classes this coming school year. I believe this degree will open opportunities for me to serve other teachers in the district by sharing my insights about teaching ELLs, and I believe I am equipped to take on newcomer classes if the opportunity presents itself.
