Testimonials

Eboni Akpan Zook
I like the cohort experience because, throughout my program, I take classes with nearly the same group of peers with whom I started. As we are familiar with each other, we are able to dig deeper into controversial topics and take risks in sharing our thoughts and experiences as educators. Eboni Akpan Zook

Megan Herman
I chose Loyola due to its focus on students and their whole person. Loyola’s cohort partnership with Montgomery County Public Schools, where I work, made it very convenient to take classes! The professors and internship site supervisors support and guide you through the process of becoming a school leader. Megan Herman

Because of my degree, my Principal created an instructional technology position for me at my school. I'm so thankful for my experience at Loyola, I'm more knowledgeable, more confident and a leader among my peers. I've made lasting friendships and professional connections. Nia Wilkes
