"The JHU Administration and Supervision ISTE program challenged and inspired me in ways I could not have imagined! It provided a solid theoretical background in effective leadership, curriculum, and supervision, and was coupled with a tremendous internship opportunity that allowed me to put that theory into practice. Guided by thoughtful, professional, and caring instructors, as well as a strong partnership with ISTE that allowed many opportunities to explore and go deeper with my own unique interests, I have emerged from this program with strong educational leadership and technology skills, as well as a new position as a school administrator. I am honored to have been a part of this unique program and to call myself a graduate of the JHU A&S/ISTE certificate program."
