"The M.Ed. I received from SWU has helped me fulfill leadership duties at my school in a more informed and constructive way. I apply active listening and problem solving skills to assist in the operation and decisionmaking that goes on in the meetings that I am required to attend. My training has also helped me develop skills to interact with parents in a more proactive and encouraging way. I have seen a tremendous improvement in my parent/teacher relationships."
