Why did you choose to attend UT Arlington?

What is your favorite thing about the College of Education at UT Arlington?
  • My favorite thing about COEd is the time we get to spend in our placement and the interactions we have with students.
Who is your favorite professor? Why?
  • My favorite professor is Dr. Hulings because she makes science hands on and engaging.
What activities do you participate in outside of class?
  • UTA Ambassadors, Black Student Association, singing in my church choir.
What are your plans after you graduate?
  • Upon graduation, I plan on teaching 1st grade.
What is the one thing you think a prospective Education student needs to know?
  • Everyone has their own teaching style and its okay if your style is different from other classmates; don't be afraid to be you!
