It was impatience – and the current news throughout the country – that led Grace Waltz to the Secondary Transition to Teaching program at the School of Education. She had a successful career as a video producer, but found herself wanting to do something more collaborative, more fulfilling and more interactive with the people inside and out of her community.
“I listened to stories of our country's peaking divisiveness and the potential for this polarization to start in our K-12 schools,” Waltz explained. “I thought about my love for kids and grammar, and I just jumped right in.”
Once she made her decision to go into education, Waltz chose the Transition to Teaching program: “What was amazing and unique was that after simply asking about my eligibility for the program, I received support and acceptance from all people in the School of Education. I was motivated to apply and begin the program.”
