Learning Center Experience
As an aspiring flutist in her teens, Maggie Broderick assumed
that she would someday have a career in the symphony. In reality, Professor
Broderick says she was already developing her inner talent as an educator. At
the time, she enjoyed studying music and performing, but what she really loved
was when a fellow flutist would ask her for help with a difficult piece of
music. “Even as a kid, I was so happy when someone would come up to
me and ask, ‘Can you help me?’”It didn’t take long to
realize that teaching was her true calling.
Professor Broderick began undergraduate work in music education
and ultimately completed her PhD in foreign language education. At Kaplan University, Professor Broderick is
an adjunct faculty member. She is an expert in teaching English language learners ,
fascinated by the increasing need in our country for educational techniques to
reach those whose second language is English. “Current statistics
indicate that 11 percent of students in the U.S. are identified as English
language learners. Our educators need to be trained on how to properly teach
Professor Broderick says that she easily identifies with the
students in an online environment. “Kaplan University students are usually
engaged in juggling that delicate balance between studies, work, and other
responsibilities. As a mother of three, I understand how critical this balance
is, and I am confident that my experiences can help them achieve their goals.”
Professor Broderick says that many of her students are in the
process of changing careers, and she understands the challenges presented by
this decision at any age. “Whether one is 25 or 50, online
universities offer an accessibility that was not available when I was in
school. Today, students have so many more options and people can study anything
from home. Students all over the world can all come together and share ideas
more easily. I wish this existed when I was in school.”
For those interested in a career in education ,
she advises getting one’s feet wet in the field while still in
school. For Professor Broderick, it was a graduate assistant position that
ultimately sparked her interest in seeking a PhD “This is where I really caught the bug.
I would highly recommend this type of a job for students in school to see where
it might lead them,”she said.
Professor Broderick advises students to connect with professional
associations in the field
to learn about career options. “For every different specialty in
education there are resources that are the key to understanding the type of
credentials one will need.” She
says that while not every educator needs a PhD, most people who complete a PhD
in education truly have a calling for that process.
“For those who want to teach, and even for those who want to
complete a PhD in education, I know it’s a passion and there’s
simply no stopping them.” And,
fortunately for those at Kaplan University, Professor Broderick is here to
