Hannah Mathes '18
Launching a career in education
Education major Hannah Mathes had such a positive experience at Endicott during her undergraduate studies, that she decided to pursue her master's degree at the Van Loan School at Endicott College.
What are your plans for after Commencement?
After graduation, I will be attending the Van Loan School at Endicott College to pursue my Master of Education in special education and applied behavioral analysis.
I chose to continue my education at Endicott in order to obtain my teacher's license in moderate disabilities and also sit for the applied behavioral analysis exam and eventually become a board certified behavioral analysis.
I will be getting my master's degree online through the Van Loan School while working full time in Connecticut as a behavior specialist.
Is there a particular faculty member, advisor, or another community member that has been an integral part of your student success and development?
Dean Sara Quay and Professor Lynne Stasiak in the School of Education have been an extreme piece to my success here at Endicott. They have supported me through all of the difficult paths I have chosen to take through my career.
What is your fondest memory, the biggest takeaway, or something you miss the most from your undergraduate career at Endicott?
My biggest takeaway from Endicott was traveling to Haiti with faculty and other students during a service trip to help people in need.
What is one piece of advice you have for incoming students?
One piece of advice that I have for incoming students is to get out of your comfort zone and try something new because now is the time and Endicott is definitely the place!
