What was the one “takeaway” you received from an MBU education?
Most importantly, I learned that teaching isn’t a job, rather a passion, as I saw in so many of my instructors at MBU. They
poured into us, truly caring about our academic success! I will forever be grateful to the music faculty that encouraged and supported me, as I struggled as a single mother of three, to help me finish my degree during the toughest time I have ever experienced.
