    Brendan Glaze, a Title I facilitator and mathematics instructional coach at Sedgefield Middle School in Goose Creek, feels his Southern Wesleyan University education has helped him to confidently move forward with his educational goals.

    Glaze, who earned his master of education degree in administration and supervision from Southern Wesleyan’s Charleston education center, feels that his training provided him with tools he needs to advance professionally. He appreciates how smaller class sizes helped him to get to know his professors and classmates.

    “As a student, I felt extremely comfortable speaking with several professors regarding school work and also personal life experiences. SWU has made me a reflective practitioner within my profession,” Glaze said.

    Glaze also feels that his work as a Title I facilitator will help improve his chances to someday become a school principal and notes, “This position gives me the opportunity to serve my school from a financial and instructional vantage point.”

    “SWU has prepared me by providing the skills to communicate and navigate among peers in the educational field. These skills have given me a better outlook on issues in schools and has made me more marketable within my district,” Glaze said. “Southern Wesleyan University is a great place to learn.”
