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!

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.
