Learning Center Experience
Born in Holland, Genevieve Koens came to the
United States with plans to succeed in business, but a divorce changed
everything. As a single mom, she decided she wanted to spend more time with her
two toddlers. “I wanted to make sure I could be at home more. When I realized
that I wanted to go back to school and stay at home with my kids, I had to
figure out how to do it,” she said.
Genevieve was always interested in becoming a
teacher so she secured a job at a private school and then secured a better job
at a public school after graduating from Kaplan University. “I needed my
master’s degree [in teaching] to get better opportunities in teaching,” she
When Genevieve decided to go back to school she
researched several online universities before choosing Kaplan University. “One
of the reasons I chose Kaplan University is because they accepted my credits
from my university in Holland,” she said. She also liked that she could take
her classes online and not have to leave her children to attend classes
Genevieve was also able to stay at home with
her children while taking a full schedule of online courses. She earned her
master's degree in teaching in 13 months.
Today Genevieve teaches the students at Orange
Morris Middle School how to prepare for and use evolving technology. Her
experience with Kaplan University was a positive one. She describes the
instructors as “being very knowledgeable.” She also felt the curriculum was
very useful to her, including a course in psychology which helped her in the
classroom because she has many students from different backgrounds and it
offered her a better understanding of them. In her words, preventing just one
child from going down the wrong path "would be amazing."
