Leave a Trail: An education student’s reflections on graduate study

The end is in sight.  At least in terms of my graduate student career at UNH. That’s not to say I haven’t enjoyed every bit of my program here as a graduate student in the Education program.  I have taken the non-traditional route of study. I have completed my program on a part-time basis and […]
