Being a Leader
One word describes Martin Luther College master’s degree students – leaders. They embody the kind of servant-leadership that Jesus modeled and encouraged (see Matthew 20: 25-28). MLC graduate students serve as leaders by modeling professionalism, by serving their students through continual growth, and by inspiring others to do the same. As I talk with MLC graduate students, they describe how they model, serve, and inspire.
Carrie Meyer MS shares how professional growth is one way she serves her students. “Over the years I found out that not all kids learn the same. I wanted to build my skills and find ways to reach students – different ways – so that I can meet their needs. That is why I thought I needed to go to MLC and learn more, so that I could help each child that I was teaching.”
Kip Wilson MS inspires other teachers to reach for a graduate degree. “I have recommended to numerous teachers to take this master’s program, whether it is leadership, or special education, or instruction. It’s such a wonderful opportunity for every person that is going to be teaching a Christ-centered curriculum in their schools, because they get to work with other teachers that are doing the same thing.”
Thank you, MLC graduate students, for being leaders in the profession!
