Students and Alumni Stories

Our students and alumni talk about their experience in the program and how it has affected their lives.

"I can honestly say that so far my experience in this program has been the best. I have been challenged, my thoughts have been provoked, and between Judy, Deb, and my cohort, I have been well supported. My experience has been so rewarding, in fact, that I have been thinking about what educational steps I want to make after I complete this program. The Law and Policy class sparked an interest in that subject matter, so I'm considering furthering my knowledge in educational law; pursuing my Doctorate is also a possibility, although I don't know for what just yet.

Things certainly took a turn this past spring with COVID, but I actually found that working remotely helped me do my job more efficiently, which then helped me fulfill my practicum requirements better. 

One big takeaway for me, especially now, is that we are in this together. It's about making connections. The connections I have made in this program have absolutely enriched my life. I'm looking forward to this next year of learning together and seeing where the growth leads me." - Gillian Voight G'21


"The coursework filled the gap in my knowledge by teaching me important laws and regulations so that I could do my job with confidence. My professors challenged me to apply what I was learning in the classroom to my everyday work. As a result, I built up the self-assurance to go into meetings with senior staff members at Gifford and speak up about the latest happenings in the field of special education administration.”

" I chose Bay Path's Special Education Administrator program because it's flexible, the staff is well-versed in special education, and the school has a good reputation. This program has helped me with my career goals because I will be eligible to receive an administrators license." - Sue Charpentier G'19
