See what Teacher of the Year; Nikki Skinner has to say about WGU:
“[WGU] was exactly the answer I was looking for to complete my graduate degree. I needed a flexible program that could accommodate my schedule and still allow me to teach full-time. Being able to go to school on your own schedule is the reason WGU works for so many working adults. Last year my mother developed cancer, I was teaching, attending WGU, and dealing with my own housing crisis. If it wasn’t for the flexibility WGU allows, I would have had to drop out. This degree is a step up. I’ve made a commitment to be more than the average teacher, I’m evolving. I have had supervisors tell me I’m a master teacher. With this degree, I now feel this title is appropriate.”
