Hello all;

I am getting ready to start the Masters in Elementary Education program at University of Phoenix. I desperately need to work during school, hence the choice of U of P. Before I give this place $16000 of money I really don't have, I want to make sure that I can get hired.

Do you know of or are a teacher with a degree from U of P? Have you (or your friends) had any problem getting a job - due to the degree? Better yet, are you a principal that has considered hiring teachers from U of P?

BTW, my BS degree is in Biology from a regular University...

Thank you for your time, Rebecca
