M.Ed Master of Education
Post-graduation plans: Springer accepted a position teaching sixth grade at Phoenix Academy charter school in High Point. While teaching, she will also be completing a Masters of Education with a concentration in Literacy through HPU’s graduate school.
How HPU helped you get there: “My education at HPU was crucial to me being offered a job at Phoenix Academy. Education has always been my passion, but my professors took me in as an excited freshman and taught me just how much there was to learn and how much work ethic it would take to be a successful teacher. They not only taught me the material, but they made me think about it, and apply it in my student teaching classroom. I was taught how to make meaningful connections with my students and that made all the difference in how I taught my them. My professors pushed me to make me the best teacher that I could be, and shared their passion for teaching and learning with me. I don’t think I would have the thirst for knowledge that I can now share with my students if my professors had not helped me develop it in an academic way.”
