What Teachers Are Saying
I've enjoyed my two years of hard work in the Concordia program. The classes were challenging and informative. I was able to collaborate with my cohort, and had professors who were knowledgeable in specific areas related to the technology program. Some classes were more challenging than others, but all of the classes allowed me to improve my teaching. Utilizing technology in the classroom has always been important to me. This Master's program gave me an edge and inspired me to engage my students using 21st century skills.
My time at Concordia has been incredibly fulfilling. As a practicing educator, the program allowed me to learn and grow while continuing to work. I was able to implement new ideas and discuss real life situations with my cohort students and professors. The schedule was demanding of my time, but worth the investment to improve as a leader. I have gained valuable leadership experience, made connections that will help in my career and truly understood the philosophical and practical applications of leadership. Overall, I am pleased with my time at Concordia and proud of the work our cohort has done together.
I have been extremely happy with my CSP experience. Being a wife, a mom to 3 children and a full time teacher, the CSP schedule has allowed me to go back to college to get my Master's and keep up with the rest of my life. The professors have all been understanding, accommodating and supportive. The expectations of each class are held to high standards, yet are feasible within the timeframe. The online experience has been great. If I have had questions, I have always gotten quick answers from professors and others such as Student Services and Financial Aid. Overall, this has been a fantastic learning opportunity for me that has allowed me to continue to grow and learn as a professional.
The CSP program is user friendly and conducive to working professionals. Relevant coursework and a faculty that boasts perspective from those that are practicing administrators solidifies this as a great option for those interested in entering educational administration. It is clear that CSP values its students and makes every effort to ensure that the educational experience is one that is positive for the student.
