The online learning environment is very conducive to my hectic schedule and the courses have offered me valuable information I use every day. I want to serve students in a deeper, more meaningful way. Because of ACU I have begun to see the classroom in a whole new way and I now aspire to model life-long learning for others. <br /> Leslie WillettMEd, Leadership of Learning<br />I am working on my master's degree so that I can continue to learn and help children in different ways in the school system. My graduate classes have been very interesting. They have renewed my interest in teaching and my desire to help students be successful. I love hearing life experiences from Dr. Goldsmith and the other professors. Hearing how they solve different situations helps me to know the thought processes I will have to go through someday. I also enjoy the Christian community at ACU. It is a comforting place to be.<br />Shauni Vaughn<br />Med, Student <br />To contact an Admissions Advisor, please call 1-877-723-1131 ext. 3530 <br />
