“Before attending Summer Licensure Orientation, I had an endless list of questions and fears. After this experience, I feel so much more at ease. This was a wonderful experience that every future educator should attend.”

“Summer Licensure Orientation was such a great way to meet the teachers and make the whole online experience personal.”

"Deeply passionate program professors/staff."

"I would like to take this opportunity to express how the summer licensure orientation helps students. I have done online programs in the past (a two-year Masters program). This is the first program I got the opportunity to meet in person with the other students and faculty. I had no idea what I was missing! The camaraderie built in those few moments will really help when I see names again in an online discussion. Rather than shaking my head at a screen online later, I see myself taking in fellow student discussion posts with empathy and compassion. Having this attitude will deepen my own learning."
