Student Profile: Rebecca Jones
Name: Rebecca Jones
Degree Program: Master of Arts in Education: Teaching of Reading
As a reading specialist, Rebecca Jones always strives to stay up-to-date on best practices, new techniques and anything else that might enhance her students’ education. She realized that getting her master’s would be the best way for her to be the best teacher possible.
After trying an online program at a different university, Jones didn’t feel she was getting the support she needed. She looked into Fontbonne University’s reading program and discovered it, too, had an online format. As a Fontbonne undergraduate alumna, she knew this time around it would be an entirely different but still completely supportive experience.
“I initially thought an online program would include a lot of self-teaching and little assistance from professors. This is not the case at Fontbonne. Despite the online format, my professors always provided prompt feedback, offered encouragement and supported me in any way they could to ensure my success.”
