The Salem State graduate program in education is one of the best programs of its kind in New England. I've learned more than I thought possible in such a short time from outstanding professors. Attending grad school at Salem State fits perfectly into my life's schedule.
I moved back here two years ago, after several years living out of state. This is a complete career change for me. I spent many years as a PR/marketing executive. After a rather serious health scare, I decided to return to Massachusetts and pursue a career in teaching ESL. Now, as a teacher in the Salem school system, my schedule at both work and graduate school is perfect.
