Write an essay where you tell us about what drives you in your pursuit of your graduate degree.

I am motivated by several things in my master’s program, including the desire for knowledge in my area of study. I want to learn more about educational and instructional technology so I can be more effective in my current position. As an educator, it is important to keep up with the latest theories and practices in education, including technology. I want to be an expert in this area to enhance educational experiences for students and provide support and best practices for teachers. I am motivated by the need to succeed! I must do well! I have waited so long to pursue my master’s degree that I will not, MUST NOT fail. Having a family, and a full-time job, and a full-time master’s course load, anything I can do to keep myself from becoming discouraged and staying the course will pay off in the end.
