Hatsue Masuyama '13
Childhood Education and English
School of Education
Westchester Campus

Childhood education and English double major Hatsue Masuyama ’13 always knew teaching was her calling. “I was inspired to pursue teaching as a result of my work as a summer camp counselor and my experiences using therapeutic horseback riding when working with people with disabilities,” she says. “Teaching is a way I can live my life fulfilled by living for the sake of others.”

Masuyama’s Pace education and access to fieldwork and student-teaching experiences the first semester of sophomore year—one year earlier than most schools—provided a solid foundation.

“Pace allows education majors to have fieldwork experience earlier than many other universities, and it is also one of a few schools that uses the Avatar TeachLivE™ Lab where education majors can practice their classroom skills in a realistic simulation.”
