MAE Reading Testimonial : Emily Latham

Emily Latham teaches 5th grade math in the Marysville School District. 

"I went to look at Otterbein University after one of my co-workers recommended it. I immediately fell in love with the small, personalized education I received. The professors' passion and dedication to their students' education is unwavering. I can confidently say this Masters program challenges its students and takes them outside of their comfort zone. There were times I wanted to quit, but with the support of my advisor and other professors, I persevered. I am a profoundly better educator and leader because of the education I received at Otterbein."
