“In my life, I have learned ‘I Can.’  By that I mean I have been blessed with a deep desire to excel in all that I do—from aerospace engineer to Army colonel to telecommunications engineer, I believe hard work creates opportunity.  I have chosen to take those opportunities and expand on them by taking part in the MS in Teaching (Restricted License Emphasis) program.  The program allows me to pass my ‘I Can’ outlook on to future generations.”

“As a new elementary school administrator, I can reflect back on PSU’s Building Level Licensure program and know that I received an education that made the transition from classroom teacher to building administrator a smooth one.  The program utilized current, experienced, and well- respected administrators as professors, bringing a true level of understanding to us with each course.”
