From the professors all the way up to the Dean, everyone has been so helpful throughout the admissions process as well as juggling the class schedule. I honestly would not have been able to do this program had it not been for the amazing staff at AJU.
Thirty-seven years after achieving my goal of an undergrad degree, I find myself thoroughly enjoying the challenge of the MA program at AJU. I am the oldest student in the group and yet feel welcomed by the other students.
Being able to study together and move through the program as a stable cohort of Jewish early childhood educators provides great support, collaboration, and opportunity for deep relationship building. It is through a community of practice such as this that life-long friendships are formed.
My classes at AJU have taught me to look at myself and reflect on my own Jewish identity. I feel the connection to my Judaism and love making those connections with my cohort as well as bringing it into my classroom.
I am lucky to be an AJU student because of the mentorship program. I have had such rich conversations with my mentor about my path as an early childhood educator, and it excites me to know the possibilities that the future will bring!
