Student Spotlight – Korey McKasson

What prompted you to earn your degree?
I have always wanted to be a teacher, life happened and I never followed through. A few years ago I decided it wasn’t too late to follow the dream. I enrolled at Simpson and completed my BA in Business Management the Spring of 2013 and started my current program in August.

What is your major and why did you select it?
I am in the Master of Arts in Teaching Program, with teaching endorsements in business and special education at the secondary level. Earning endorsements in both of these areas seems to be a natural fit for me.

How has your experience at Simpson impacted your life?
Classmates in most of my classes came from diverse backgrounds. Hearing their experiences has given me a better perspective on situations that I knew almost nothing about before.

What has stood out to you as a fundamental part of your Simpson Experience?
The professors at Simpson want students to be successful.

What do you plan to do once you graduate?
Teach special education at the middle school level.

What is your favorite vacation spot?
Every year we spend time in Branson and Wisconsin Dells.
