BS in Information Technology Graduate and MS in Information Technology Student
My coursework has recently helped me get a new job as chief information officer at a school district in Indiana.
I'm a teacher by profession, and today, teaching is shifting from teacher to student, to student to teacher. My DIT gave me the opportunity to learn a little about so many things, and that is what I need in my profession.
I loved the flexibility of Walden. I was able to work my assignments into my schedule.
