🎥🚨 🇺🇸Q & A w/ MAT Secondary Education Student Ryan Jones '24

✏️What motivated you to pursue a Master's in Education from The Citadel?
📓I pursued a Master's in Education at Citadel because it offered better preparation for a teaching career than the PACE program. Additional motivating factors were the potential for a higher starting salary and access to a respected professional network. Given the concerns of teacher burnout in South Carolina, I wanted to be well-prepared and receive support from The Citadel in finding the right school for my career. Citadel's vital placement statistics and personal conversations with various professors confirmed that the M.A. program was my best choice.

✏️How does Citadel's Masters in Education program prepare students for careers in education?
📓Citadel provides a comprehensive approach to education by combining educational theory from readings, hands-on classroom experiences, and classroom discussions. The in-person learning experience also facilitates networking opportunities where prospective educators can seek advice from experienced teachers. While online courses offer flexibility, I recommend taking some in-person courses at Citadel to align thinking with experienced educators and understand the continuous improvement process in teaching.

✏️Advice for individuals considering pursuing a Masters in Education at Citadel?
📓Two crucial aspects for prospective students considering a Masters in Education at Citadel are having a genuine desire to positively impact students and recognizing the turnover and attrition within the teaching field. A mindset focused on improving student outcomes and critical thinking, along with a willingness to constantly refine teaching tactics and expand content knowledge, will lead to a fulfilling and successful career in education. Citadel provides opportunities to achieve both aspects.

✏️Plans after graduation?
📓After completing my current program in May '24, I plan to enroll in the M.A. Military History program at Citadel in August '24. This decision will allow me to deepen my content mastery and prepare for potential leadership roles in my field.

🗣️🎖️Keep up with Ryan Jones teaching journey through ZFSOF LinkedIn and Facebook account! 🤍
