Why do you enjoy working with professional degree students?
It is truly a gift to work with professional degree students. I am not only faculty, but I am a co-learner with the diverse and multi-facets students in my classroom as we explore the course material together. Every session is different. These students have intentionally made the choice to return to school while balancing so many important competing priorities, like raising a family and advancing their careers, and they bring so much real-world knowledge and experience with them. I truly enjoy my work at SCPS!
"Natasha provides great feedback, is understanding, there is no confusion on instructions and what is expected. It was really nice to have an instructor who cares. Very supportive and aware that most of us have been out of the classroom for a long time."
