  • Program Educational Technology

A graduate student in the Educational Technology program in Loyola's School of Education, Whitney Plunkett received a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Shippensburg University in 2012 and began her teaching career in Baltimore County Public Schools. Today she teaches fifth grade at Forest Ridge Elementary in Howard County. She chose Loyola for her graduate degree because the university's core values and beliefs align so closely with her own. “The faculty in my program are passionate about technology and 21st century learning,” Whitney says. “My professors are flexible, caring, and always available. I have walked away with a multitude of ideas and strategies that I can take back to my school, share with others, and apply in my own classroom.” In the future, Whitney hopes to explore the educational technology field further and inspire other teachers by sharing the skills she developed through her program.
