I just completed my third semester...

I just completed the third semester of Bemidji State University's DLiTE teacher education program. I am half done! For the past 18 months I have been continuously challenged by the rigorous coursework and the knowledgeable professors who demanded intellectual engagement. Since I was previously awarded a Bachelor degree from another university, I could have completed the shorter FasTrack program, but chose to complete the longer BSU DLiTE Program in order to gain a more extensive foundation of teacher education competency prior to entering the classroom. I heartily recommend Bemidji State University's online DLiTE Program as a route into the elementary classroom.

The DLiTE Program has provided me the opportunity to fulfill what would have otherwise been only an elusive dream...the dream of becoming a certified teacher. As a mother, homemaker, and full time paraprofessional, the ability to take classes online in the virtual environment has provided me with the skills to teach in a rapidly changing era. Thanks to Bemidji State University's ability to believe that the seemingly impossible goals in life are really attainable, their vision has become my reality!

... This program provided me with a unique learning environment and learning experiences which have well prepared me for my current position ...

I just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful experience I had in the DLiTE program. This program provided me with a unique learning environment and learning experiences which have well prepared me for my current position. I obtained a job teaching in a Level IV, DCD classroom and the experience of learning in an out-of-the-box environment has well suited me to teach in an out-of-the-box way. I have students who are all learning in different ways and have different abilities. The program taught me to be able to think beyond the traditional and to adapt my thinking in order to meet the needs of all of my students. Being a part of the DLiTE Program taught me to create a unique learning environment that will unlock the potential of my students.

... You have developed a wonderful program... your enthusiasm is infectious!...

I just wanted to tell you how impressed I was with the training on Saturday. I signed on to be a mentor but was not quite sure what I was getting myself into. I am sure that these students will actually be held more accountable than I was in a regular program. I wish that I could be the student again. You have developed a wonderful program and I am excited to participate in it! Your enthusiasm is infectious!

Because of your vision and hard work, I am warm and safe AND earning my degree....

I just wanted to say thanks again. I am sitting in my basement office at 8:30 pm-working on my classes through DLiTE. It is -33 degrees right now with wind chills around -45. Before DLiTE, I would have been somewhere in the middle of a 100+ mile commute to class. Because of your vision and hard work, I am warm and safe AND earning my degree. Thanks again!!

I can't imagine doing it any other way...

Classes are going well, I really am enjoying them. I think you chose the best of the best in Faculty, and I am impressed how everyone is so attentive and responds often. They are fabulous teachers who do a wonderful job with the students. I am amazed at how much I have learned in an online class; everyone thinks its really strange that we do all these classes online. I can't imagine doing it any other way...this has been a great experience so far. You deserve a pat on the back for a great program! Take Care!

... it has been a wonderful experience...

Just a quick note to let you know that you were in my thoughts today. I am almost done with my student teaching and it has been a wonderful experience. One that I felt I had been more prepared for because of my time spent in the classroom the past three years. I know that I whined about the practicum aspect of our classrooms but I thank you now for keeping it as part of the experience. I thank you once again for the vision and dedication that you have had in creating and implementing this program! BSU is all the stronger for your effort.

Hats off to the DLiTE program!...

My mentee seems to have things under control. She came to school to show my class and me her project for Human Relations class. I was very impressed. What a great idea she came up with. We're going to get together after her weekend at the Perpich Center and said she'll share the comments people made about her project. She has really grown this year. It's remarkable to see! I just received a Graduation announcement for my other mentee. How exciting. She's taking a big sigh of relief after her student teaching experience. It's been a fun ride for both of us! Great things have happened for both of my mentees. Hats off to the Dlite program!
