I chose the MSMC Clear program because I had such a valuable and meaningful experience in the Preliminary Teaching Credential program. I was confident going into this Clear Program that it would be worthwhile. It is just as I thought! The assignments are relevant and valuable in my current classroom. The professors are accessible and their expectations for my authentic teaching/learning are extremely high, (as it should be). I also chose The Mount because I knew I would be much more than a number or a user name in an on-line program. I wanted the curriculum and professors to challenge me to grow as an educator. I also wanted my professors to be my mentors, which is exactly what you get at the Mount. I feel like the professors genuinely care about my professional development.
