After graduating from the B.S./M.S. program, Monica Singh became a student support coordinator in Drexel’s Learning Technologies Group. She then relocated to New York City and became an academic advisor at Parsons The New School for Design. She works with students who are pursuing degrees in business and design, and fashion marketing students who are mostly career-changers. Currently, Singh also is an adjunct faculty member with the School of Education, where she teaches the EDUC 525 course.
“My experiences teaching EDUC 525 have reminded me of the reason why I decided to pursue a degree in Teacher Education. It is a wonderful feeling to help students learn and make breakthroughs,” Singh says.
Singh was partly inspired by her Drexel professors, and the genuine care they took in doing all they could to help their students succeed.
“I remember very fondly stopping by Dr. Grdina's office often and feeling comfortable to ask her advice not only about my future educational endeavors, but my overall career path,” Singh says. “She provided me guidance and welcomed me and my peers with open arms. This type of support was not necessarily found elsewhere on campus, and for that I am very grateful.”
Singh says ultimately, she wants to work for an education-based start-up that integrates technology into solving some of the problems educators face. She would love to work for an organization that provides an engaging online environment for students.
"I feel that my experience as an online student, a staff member supporting online students, and now an adjunct faculty of an online course in the School of Education has made me the person I am today,” Singh says.
