Danielle Meyer attended SUNY Oswego for both her undergrad and graduate work in technology education. In the spring, Meyer not only had graduation to look forward to, but she also already had a teaching position lined up. In September, Meyer will be the new Career and Technical Education teacher at Washington-Lee High School in Arlington, Virginia.
Name: Danielle Meyer 13’
Education: B.S. in Technology Education M.S.E.D. in Technology Education
New Position: Career and Technical Education teacher at Washington-Lee High School in Arlington, Virginia
What led you to your career choice?
I had taken some technology courses in high school and thought they were interesting. I really had not considered technology education until one of my teachers suggested it. When doing research for programs and universities that offered teacher preparation programs Oswego seemed like the perfect fit.
Describe your new position?
I will be teaching courses in Project Lead the Way: Introduction to Engineering and Principles of Engineering as well as an International Baccalaureate (IB) Design Technology Course. I have five weeks of training this summer to prepare me for the classroom in September.
All of the courses that I will be teaching provide students with basic foundations into the world of technology and design. They will help students understand how everyday structures and systems function. Students will work towards technological literacy and be informed consumers.
Why did you choose SUNY Oswego for Graduate School?
During my senior year of undergrad, I decided I was not quite ready to put Oswego in the rear-view mirror. I thought about it and considered both applying for jobs and applying for graduate school. In the end, I decided my best option was to stay at SUNY Oswego to continue on for my master’s degree.
What caught your attention about the program?
I decided to stay at SUNY Oswego to continue my education because of the positive experiences that I had within the department of technology as well as other areas around campus.
Something that also helped me decide to stay was the option to start the summer following my graduation from undergrad. The program can be completed in two summers (30 credit hour degree) or one year (one summer, fall, and spring). I decided to go for an additional year to get my masters and then proceed to test the job market.
How did SUNY Oswego help you succeed?
I would not be where I am today without the help of SUNY Oswego. I enjoyed just about every minute of being at the university minus my freshmen year transition, the long drive from Long Island to Oswego, and the white stuff that would not stop falling from the sky.
SUNY Oswego provided me with the tools and resources I needed to accomplish another milestone in my life. Finishing college with both a B.S and a M.S.E.D has helped me both professionally and personally to discover what I want to do, who I am, and how I can make a difference.
How did SUNY Oswego help lead you to where you are today?
SUNY Oswego provides financial assistance for students to present and attend academic conferences. I was nominated for a graduate level award through International Technology Engineering Educators Association (ITEEA), where I attend the National Conference in Columbus, Ohio this March and presented at a showcase event.
The Rise Office on campus was able to help fund this experience for me. At this opportunity, I was able to interact with professionals throughout the U.S. It is at this conference that I met an individual who I stayed in contact with and set up interviews with for a teaching job (that I accepted).
Other than classes, what other experiences at Oswego benefited you?
Classes were a major reason as to why I decided to stay at Oswego, but not nearly as much as the people that I met and did not want to depart from.
Being a female in a predominantly male field, I made sure to branch off into other directions to meet new people with different interests. I participated in various honor societies, intramural sports, and the fitness center to accomplish this.
Another reason I decided to stay at SUNY Oswego was the cost of the university. Education is extremely expensive and only continues to rise in price, especially from undergrad to graduate credit hour costs. SUNY Oswego offers many different graduate assistant positions that are available to assist in these costs. I applied throughout campus to various positions to try to help fund my education. My graduate assistantship helped me work with individuals around campus to make new events. I really enjoyed implementing the Color Oswego event this spring with the help of campus professionals and SUNY Oswego.
