In addition to the Educational Studies program, Mara ('15) pursued a minor in outdoor education and leadership and courses in special education while at Westminster. During that time, Mara was able to complete a research project and multiple internships, which provided valuable experience for future job opportunities.
Because of an interest in working with young children and diverse learners, Mara is currently working with 3–6-year-old children at an inclusive Montessori school. Majoring in educational studies allowed Mara to take classes that helped prepare for working in a variety of settings, such as this one.
