Life at Wittenberg
Graduation Year: 1999
Department Activities: While at Witt, I was a member of MAAWUC and I worked as a tutor in the Math Workshop.
Athletics: Baseball (4 years) Football (1 year)
Most Helpful Courses: While you are taking the courses you just want to get through them. It isn’t until you graduate that you begin to find the value in the reasoning and logic that you have gained. I would encourage all students to stay the course, it is all beneficial.
Courses You Wish You Would’ve Taken: I wish I had taken more Physics courses. I enjoyed Physics and believe it would have helped me teach across the curriculum in my classes. I also wish Wittenberg would have related material from one course to the next as much as possible. Courses seemed to be isolated.
Most Helpful Experiences: I cannot put my finger on one experience. I enjoyed my athletic teams for the community building opportunities and camaraderie.
Graduation Year: 2006
Grad School: Ohio State
Degree: Masters in Educational Policy and Leadership
First Job: I was a math teacher at Beechcroft High School.
