I was very excited to find a Master's of Education program that has allowed me to
continue my life in Cairo, and I am able to apply what I learn in graduate school
daily in my second grade classroom. My participation in the program has opened doors
for me within the international school system, and helped me secure a position as
an eighth grade teacher at a Canadian school in Cairo for the next two years while
I finish my degree and earn my full certification. - Hannah Peters
