"I am very excited about this new challenge in front of me, as the program I am in was created for people just like me - teachers who already have experience but want more training in their field. I am very much looking forward to this amazing opportunity and to being both a student and a teacher. I still must pinch myself sometimes to remind myself that this is really happening! Thank you for making it possible for me to pursue my education further!"
