“Choosing Immaculata was the best thing I could have done. I’ve learned more than I thought possible about the world of education. The wealth of knowledge the professors hold has inspired me to become a lifelong learner. It is evident that the professors at Immaculata are true educators. The courses I’ve taken have both challenged and motivated me. Every week I was learning something new and unexpected, not only about the material but also about who I am as an educator. Because of my professors and my coursework, I am prepared for any direction my career may go.”

—Moira O’Reilly, early intervention special education teacher
