“The biggest challenge of the program for me was being able to balance everything that I do, as well as my children and work. I'm also a fitness instructor and a single dad half-time. Being a full-time teacher, as well as being involved in the community, is really hard to do everything. A 100 percent online program was exactly what I needed.” – Rodney Holloway, Master of Education (2016)
