Micaela Ethier, MA '15

Micaela Ethier, MA '15 MA in Educational Psychology Why did you choose to pursue your degree at Marist?
During my first year of teaching, I found the usefulness of educational psychology in the classroom. Marist was able to offer a degree in which I had a strong interest in, as well as a program that leads to professional certification in NYS, which made this program a perfect fit for me. Also, the online program has allowed me to continue my education, while still being able to teach full time in Saratoga Springs.
