Literacy Education M.A.
Brandy chose WVU Online because it allowed her to earn her degree while working full-time as a teacher.
“I had the flexibility of working from home, while still being able to actively engage with faculty and peers.”
“While engaging in the coursework, I realized that I have a passion for teaching reading.”
“The 100% online curriculum, along with my previous positive experiences with the faculty, prompted me to enroll in the Literacy Education program. Now, after 17 years as a preschool teacher, I am starting a new position as a Reading Specialist, and I am so excited to start this new adventure!”
Brandy was able to connect with her peers and the faculty in her courses through a variety of technology tools, including discussion boards, asynchronous video and audio discussions, and synchronous small group meetings.
She says it is important for students taking online classes to feel comfortable using the course tools.
“I would also tell them to be sure that they understand the expectations for the course. If not, be sure to reach out!”
