        "The Urban Education Option provided me first hand experience with the challenges and rewards of teaching in Title 1 school. These students have great potential and it is our job to help them realize their potential. The partnerships between KSU and Cobb County provided an environment in which I was able to understand, by hands on experience, the unique needs of students in these schools. I believe this experience will make me a more effective teacher."
