Testimonial 1

The TCSJ STEM with MIAA M.Ed. program is a bona fide, precious treasure of the San Joaquin County Office of Education. The integration of rigorous, relevant coursework, 21st Century Skills-based thinking, and supportive, approachable, and intellectually stimulating faculty have made my Mathematics and STEM knowledge base grow exponentially with each course I take. I love how immediately transferable my TCSJ experiences are to my own classroom. Self-reflection, collaboration with peers, and the application of research based practices have pushed me beyond my self-professed teaching limitations to be a positive force in the field of Mathematics and STEM education. Being a life-long learner, I believe that it’s never too late to achieve your goals, even at the age of 51; I drive each week from Tracy, excited about what I’ll learn next with my TCSJ family!
—Sherry Gleason, STEM w/ MIAA M.Ed. Candidate

Testimonial 2

I have really enjoyed my Masters Degree courses through TCSJ. The Early Childhood Education Courses were informational with instructors who are knowledgeable, making the classes interesting and relevant. I have been able to take ideas taught and lessons that were created and shared, back to my classroom to use with my students. The Masters Program has been a wonderful experience and I felt supported by everyone at TCSJ throughout my experience. I highly recommend TCSJ to anyone who is looking to further their education.
—Elizabeth Magnuson, M.Ed. Early Education
