Special Education M.A.Ed. gives Hannah Beck new teaching tools for art classroom

Aurora Public Schools art teacher Hannah Beck is set to graduate in Spring 2022, but she says what she has learned has already made a difference in her classroom this past school year.

"The quality of instruction in the online program is exceptional. You never know what you are going to get in an online environment, but the faculty here are all research driven and very committed to the graduate program and helping students grow. It sets you up really great to find the direction you want to go."
