I think the faculty did a great job kind of fostering discussion and fostering a critical thinking culture. You know, I got all the essential principles that that any teacher would need, along with how teaching and learning may play into lives outside of a traditional school setting.

One of the things I mean, I loved the most about Webster was kind of the emphasis on discussion in classes and tons of critical thinking goes into what I do. I mean, I'm training people every single day, you know, telling them what I do, what's going on with these projects. I think educational studies with great job kind of preparing me for that and giving me the tools I need to be successful.

I learned how to kind of take all of the - the skills and knowledge that I had learned over the past four years, kind of translate those to a professional setting.
