There was no "Pomp and Circumstance".
But there was a recognition of the group of students from Boise State University who were completing their Master's Degree in Special Education.
The ceremony was done on Zoom, with pictures of each graduate flashed on the computer screen with one of their favorite quotes. Then one of their advisors would share some uplifting and encouraging comments about the graduate. After their photo was shown, each student had the opportunity to say a little bit about how the program has helped them.
Most of the students had been in their Master's program for the past two years after receiving their teaching certificate as an undergrad student.
Zoe and two other students are receiving their Masters in Teaching in Special Education and still have a summer session to go until they are completely done with their Master's Program work.
Paul and I were both very proud of all the hard work Zoe has put into this program, and enjoyed sitting and watching this celebration with her. Between her and her advisors they were able to figure out how they could meet the student teaching requirement this last spring without being in the classroom with the students.
Zoe received some other exciting news. She has been offered a teaching job at Meridian Middle School for next fall teaching Special Education. She has been a paraprofessional at this school for the past four years. We are so excited to see Zoe pursue her love of teaching her future Special Education students.
Way to go Miss Zoe!!
