Having the flexibility to be able to work, but still gain all the benefits of my masters program was invaluable to me as a working professional. I am not sure if I could have done it any other way," said Dave Wilson, Vice Principal at Celina High School. Wilson is responsible for developing, maintaining, evaluating, and implementing curricular and extracurricular programs to drive student achievement and growth in the e-learning environment needed to succeed in the future.
