I originally started the Math MEd Program at Ohio State University in hopes of earning my licensure and degree to become ahigh schoolmath teacher. The MEd program had a rigorous curriculum that prepared me for everyday tasks and encouraged me to find opportunities to network and continue my learning after the program. As I finish up my first year of teaching, I have come to realize that the program did not just give me thecredentials neededto teach, but helped me to explore and understand who I am as a teacher. Icreated memories with the faculty, mentors and cohort that would last a lifetime while getting me closer to my goal.

The Science Education program put me on a path that I could not have imagined would be a reality. Because of this program I landed a dream position at a school where I can flourish and bring change. Each and everycourse I was able to participate in has guided and shaped me into the teacher I am today. I cannot explain how grateful I am to say that I am a Buckeye. Without this program I could not give my students the experiences they deserve within the classroom.

The STEM Education (Mathematics) program at Ohio Stategave me the skills necessary to become a knowledgeable and well-rounded mathematics educator. The curriculum is thoughtfully designed to grow both your content knowledge and teaching skills. As a student, it was especially valuable that I had classes with a small group of peers who became my friends and support system. During my final year of the program, I was able to engage in a daily field experience and create a teaching portfolio to use for job interviews.
