MA Education - Special Education

A little bit about me....

My name is Katrina Ballesteros and I am currently enrolled in the Masters of Education Program with a Specialization in Special Education. I have been married for almost 20 years to my wonderful husband, Marcelo. We have a beautiful daughter, Kayleigh, who is a junior in high school.

I graduated from Ashford University in October, 2012 with a Bachelor's in Early Childhood Education. I currently work as a Preschool Teacher with CDI Head Start in Kansas.

I chose to become a mentor so that I could help students who are beginning their college journey. When I enrolled in online classes at Ashford, I felt all alone. My advisor contacted me to make sure that I was doing okay along the way, but I felt that I could have benefited from more. I want to be able to give what I did not have; I want to help others.
