Brittany Keehan

Classical Education Graduate Program Student & Third Grade Teacher

Brittany Keehan, a third grade teacher who has a strong background in both liberal and classical education, discovered the University of Dallas when the Classical Education Graduate Program at the Braniff Graduate School of Liberal Arts arose — and has been glad to find an enthusiastic community of teachers with whom to share in the pursuit of this degree. "My biggest struggle as a teacher has been articulating what it is that I see that is valuable in the Socratic Method, and what the Socratic Method is to my colleagues. I think that this program is going to give me the phrases, the readings, the questions to open conversations with my colleagues so that our curriculum is strengthened and our methodology is strengthened."

Ron Bergez

Certificate in Classical Learning Student & Humanities Teacher

Ron Bergez, a current Certificate of Classical Learning student is no stranger to classical education — nor to the University of Dallas. The father of two UD alumni, Bergez was excited to experience for himself a slice of the school his children attended. "What I've always wanted is to keep feeding my mind and becoming better at my craft. I've been able to do some of that on my own, but I've long wanted to pursue an advanced degree to enhance my understanding of what I teach and how I can teach it better. A teacher should always be a learner, anyway, and the faculty at UD will bring my learning to a level way beyond whatever I can do for myself." READ MORE
