Mike is living proof that it’s never too late to challenge yourself to learn something new and innovative. After undergoing multiple career changes throughout his life (including work as a parcel delivery driver to a real estate agent to a full-time parent), he not only decided to become a middle school teacher, but he’s now actively taking steps to prepare for the future of education. An algebra teacher at Dumbarton Middle School in Maryland, his graduate studies at Loyola have exposed him to numerous instructional tools and avenues that he can apply in the classroom, even ahead of school district trends. When it came to interviewing for teaching positions, he found that the Loyola University Maryland name carried weight among hiring managers, and many of his current colleagues are also Loyola graduates who frequently share their own positive experiences about their education.
