Conway Adult Education Center, WAGE Lead Teacher/Program Coordinator
“I currently work as an Adult Education instructor at Conway’s Adult Education Center. As an adult education teacher in the state of Arkansas, you must obtain your Adult Education Teacher Certification. I started the program at UALR simply because I was required to obtain certification. After one semester of classes it was obvious to me that the curriculum being taught was spot on for what I was doing in the classroom and in my program each day. The content was very useful and timely. My only hesitation regarding going ahead and getting my Masters in Adult Education was the commute. I was blown away when I found out that I could take every class I needed to complete my degree on-line! I live over 50 miles away and the ability to study for the degree on-line clinched the deal. I quickly decided that I wanted to pursue the Adult Education Masters Program.
“Dr. Boden was wonderful working with me via e-mail and in the Blackboard program in order to provide my advising at a distance. Dr. Robertson’s and Dr. Boden’s classes were full of content I could use in my job day-to-day.”
Graduated Fall 2010
“During my pursuit of my Master’s of Adult Education I enjoyed myself thoroughly. I was able to obtain knowledge from very friendly and knowledgable professors. However, what made my experience unique was the diverse careers and backgrounds of my peers. I enjoyed the collaboration during assignments and also appreciated different viewpoints from practicing professionals in the field of Adult Education and Education. Many of my peers were able to give me insight into facilitating education in a classroom and also outside of the classroom. As a Mental Health Paraprofessional, working with teenagers and adults, I was also able to use these invaluable experiences to help me better serve my clients. Finally, a lot of these experiences were quite new and unfamiliar to me. As a result, I found myself learning how to be creative in my own practice and having a lot of faith!”
