"When I began to look into advanced degree programs, one of the most important factors I considered was that the program needed to have a curriculum that incorporated classes in both education and science. As an educator, I have learned that it is equally important to be a master in your subject area, as well as in your instructional practices and methodology. I believe that the intentional curriculum design of the Master of Natural Sciences Education program [at CSU] will help me develop holistically in my work as a teacher. Another key factor that led me to consider Colorado State University is that this program will allow me to maintain my current teaching position while I pursue my degree. I strongly believe that a critical component to an advanced degree program is the ability to connect your coursework with past and current professional experiences. I am excited about the opportunity to apply newly learned techniques directly to my current teaching position and also to share my experiences with my professors and classmates. The third factor that led me to consider this program is the ability to explore passion areas through the independent study and research components that are built into the curriculum."
