WGU may be the perfect fit for adult learners, but even our students can be kids at heart. Take Brian Butt, a student from Riverton, Utah, earning his IT degree online at WGU. He lives playing video games and making things explode.
You’ve dreamed of being a teacher for a long time. You’ve pictured yourself in front of that classroom, all those little eyes and ears focused on you, ready to learn. You enrolled in an online teacher certification program and you’ve learned a lot about being a teacher.
Some call her Dr. Doolittle. Others call her the Chicken Whisperer. She’s a wife and a mom. And for a lucky handful of students earning their business degree online, she’s known as "My mentor, Lee Angel."

WGU recently took a look at the job market for teachers and found that the prospects are as diverse as the educational needs of America’s students.
