Prospective Secondary Education Students: Get Started
“A higher level of thinking is honored at Morris. It was cool to work with faculty who listened to my ideas. That nurtured my critical thinking skills and my curiosity. Matt, my husband, and I, both UMM secondary education alumni, taught abroad in Mexico and in Kuwait. I was asked to teach an environmental unit in Kuwait, which helped me realize my passion. I earned a master's degree in environmental education. I'm Bemidji State College's sustainability coordinator and also teach People in the Environment. I love it.”
