“There are too many highlights to Longwood University’s Educational Leadership program to name just one. Through flexible classes, I received an extraordinary education from professionals working in my chosen field who ensured I had many opportunities to experience being an administrator and leader. I feel thoroughly prepared for the next professional role I step into, but since the day I began this program, I’ve been able to grow as a leader in my current role.”

"After completing the Longwood University ELL Bootcamp courses, I obtained my ESL endorsement and current job as ESL elementary teacher. The online format is convenient and is achievable while working or pursuing other classes. The three courses were content-rich and prepared me well for my current job. The strategies taught would be beneficial to all educators."
