My experience in the Educational Leadership program at Monmouth University was nothing short of excellent. Throughout the program I learned how to harness the full potential of school stakeholders in order to positively impact schools for all children. My coursework and internship in the Educational Leadership program at Monmouth University provided me with the ability to take on new challenges, achieve and create meaningful resources in my current role as Supervisor of Instruction. The experiences gained and relationships built are invaluable to me as an educator and leader.
