Monique Hite - Special Education


Name
: Monique Hite

Degree Program: Master of Arts in Education with a concentration in Special Education

Monique Hite had been teaching for four years when she decided to get her master’s in special education. She was seeing more and more students with special needs and wanted to expand her skill set to better educate them. As an alumna of Fontbonne University, she was aware of the graduate-level special education curriculum and knew that a return to Fontbonne would serve her well.

Hite has found her professors to be extremely knowledgeable. The curriculum is relevant to her career, and, in her own classroom, she’s already implementing the new techniques and skills she’s learned.

“As an undergraduate alumna, coming back to Fontbonne for graduate school was an easy decision. I enjoy and thrive in the close-knit community that few other schools offer, and those involved in the special education program were no exception. My professors were reachable, understanding and accommodating. When I didn’t think I could make it, they were there to see me through.”
