I am still attending the University of Phoenix, and I have to say that I have some good experiences and some experiences that are not so good. My classes were incredible, I learned a lot in those classes, and I had to take the PRAXIS II test and most people have to take the test two or three times, and UOP prepared me for the test, in addition, I learned a lot of techiniques and teaching pedagogy from the school. I had a wonderful experience with my classes, and I will give them an A+ for that.

However, I cannot say the same for my Academic Counselors and my Teaching Educational Specialists, and the department who works with the districts to put you through the student teaching process. I was supposed to be entering into my student teaching June 10, 2008. Three days before I was supposed to start, the school contacted me and said that I could not start my student teaching at that time, they then pushed my student teaching back to July 28, 2008. They then called and said that they were going to push the date back to Septemeber 2, 2008. Then they wanted to push back my student teaching date to September 25, 2008. So, instead of me completing my program within 2 years or less, I will be finishing my program in the beginning of 2009. In addition; initially they told me that I could work while doing my student teaching, and at the last minute, they notified the principal, not me, and said that I could not work while in my student teaching, which is leaving me in bind, and I am not prepared to financially to take care of my bills and my family. I am very disappointed with the education program at the University of Phoenix for this matter. I will reccommend students who want to go into the Education degree program, that if you are looking to get licensed, then do not do online programs, go to a ground University.
