“The Master of Science program at Thomas College has been an incredible experience for me. It has taught me how thinking beyond the normal role of an educator deeply broadens the educational experience for my students. I am able to apply every, single piece of information I have learned into my daily practice. It was such a wonderful decision that was overdue!”Kelley Dowe MS ’21, High School Science Teacher
