  • Thank you for joining me today…. I’m going to talk about the graduate degree programs the American College of Education has developed and is offering to teachers of this district…. Before we begin, I have just a few questions… 1. Who already holds a masters degree? In what? From where? 2. IS anyone familiar with ACE? 3. Does anyone have experience with online or distance education programs, be it college courses, professional development courses, or courses you offer to your students? What provider/college? Great!....
