“I like that the classes are small and that there are a variety of ways to take them: in class, telecourse, and online.”
Tymetra Pratt got a head start at completing her associate’s degree at AACC while she was in high school. Tymetra was an Office Systems Management Tech Prep student at Broadneck High School. Through the tech prep program she was able to earn college credit while in high school. When she came to AACC in August 2003 she received 9 articulated credits.
“I found out about the Tech Prep program through my computer teacher in high school,” said Tymetra. “I put my 9 credits toward electives. It saved so much time.”
The transition from high school to college was also made easier through the Summer Bridge program at AACC. Through this program, Tymetra was able to get introduced to the college and get prepared for the college environment before classes started.
Tymetra works part time as a Program Assistant for the School of Continuing and Professional Studies at AACC and as a food service attendant at Anne Arundel Medical Center. She is also involved with the Student Achievement and Success Program (SASP) at AACC.
This hard working and busy student enjoys learning and working at AACC.
“I like that the classes are small and that there are a variety of ways to take them: in class, telecourse, and online,” said Tymetra. “I enjoy working at AACC too. The people I work with are very nice.”
Tymetra hopes to graduate this spring and then transfer to University of Maryland, Baltimore County to earn a bachelor’s in information systems. She eventually wants to get her master’s degree and have a career in information systems security.
