"Lesley University stimulates creativity and prepares teachers very well. I learned so much at Lesley – about how people learn, how to ask big questions, and how to answer them creatively. Almost every class offered food for thought and inspiring projects. When I graduated with my M.Ed. in Art Education, I was fully prepared for a teaching career in the arts. I use skills and approaches I learned at Lesley every day in my job. I highly recommend the Creative Arts in Learning division."
