My St. Lawrence Experience
My time at St. Lawrence was beneficial in both an academic and a social sense.  Both the Master’s and Certificate of Advanced Study helped prepare me for becoming a school leader through both theoretical and practical lessons.  The program also provided great networking and allowed me to get to know other people interested in school leadership.  Many of the people I now work with regionally as principals and superintendents went through the SLU program and learned together as students.
