WT Alum Donna Kerr

Donna Kerr, Teacher at Holy Cross Catholic Academy
Graduate, 2018

“Earning my Master of Arts degree at WTAMU was truly a wonderful experience. The professors were not only knowledgeable about their subjects but also taught with passion and enthusiasm. They were available for questions and discussion either by text, email, or face to face depending on time and preference. The opportunities outside the curriculum, meet the author, poetry readings, plays, guest lecturers, and study groups, were invaluable additions. The group I took my comps with had all been in the same online chats for classwork–so we shared study notes by email and occasionally met at the coffee house to study together sharing questions, answers, and resources. We had young people who had just completed their Bachelor of Art degrees, relatively new teachers, long-experienced teachers, and retired people who just wanted to keep their brains growing. The best part for me was the genuine dedication and compassion the faculty offered the students. From each of the classes I took, I have implemented things into my own classroom. More than a degree, I acquired new lessons and fresh classroom strategies to prepare my students for the college life they will experience after they graduate. I made many friends.”

Award for Excellence in Graduate Studies, 2018

My graduate studies at WTAMU bolstered my confidence to share and teach writing. Teaching English at any level comes with self-trepidation about your own understanding of texts and the writing process. The professors at WT were authentically excited about nurturing my growth through their rigorous course work, but they were always understanding and gracious when I came up short offering ways to overcome or circumvent the missing pages I found in my own education. My time at WT enables me to teach my students with the same principles and opened doors into leadership roles in my own teaching community. My studies continue to enrich my life professionally as well as personally well after graduation.
