"The Math Education Certificate program has great instructors. The structure, organization and great activities my professors did with us gave me a blueprint to successfully teach online. I truly believe that without completing this program, I wouldn't have been chosen as the 2023 Teacher of the Year at my school. I'm so grateful for the experience!"
