Why OHIO’s Online MAA Program

Lee Ann Ballard

Biology Teacher and Girls Basketball Coach
Springfield High School, OH

Lee Ann is in her third semester of the online MAA program. When asked why she chose Ohio University’s online MAA program, she gave us three reasons: Flexibility, relevant curriculum, and networking opportunities.

Flexibility is important to me as I am a teacher, coach, and mother of two children. Secondly, this program offers relatable and relevant curriculum that I could apply right away. Last, but not least, the relationships I developed from group discussions and other networking opportunities have been so beneficial and will continue to be in the future.” Listen to her full story and other student testimontials here.
