"An English degree is a great foundation for teaching. After I graduate from Hilbert, I want to get my master's in early childhood education. In fact, I have an internship this fall in a kindergarten class at an elementary school in Buffalo – I'm really excited about that."
Melanie Thomas, Class of 2007
