Area of Certification and Year: 
Mid-Level Math/Science (Class of 2018)

Why did you choose to attend UTA? 

I chose UTA because of numerous reasons, but the most important being the university's diversity. Attending the fifth most diverse college campus in the nation allows me to learn about cultures from all over the world and meet people from all walks of life. 

What is your favorite thing about the College of Education at UTA?

My favorite thing about the College of Education at UTA is how helpful and supportive everyone is of one another. 

Who is your favorite professor? Why?

My favorite professor is Dr. Galloway because she is so upbeat, lively, passionate about education, and she's always trying to help you in every way she can, with any issue you have (even if it's a random life problem). 

What activities do you participate in outside of class?

I'm part of the Honors College, and currently President of another organization on campus. When I'm not on campus, I love to get in touch with my creative side by experimenting with film and photography as well as crafting. 

What are your plans after you graduate? 

After graduation, I plan on going straight to graduate school where I hope to pursue my Masters in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies with an emphasis in Higher Education. One day, I would love to work as a Learning and Development Specialist. 

What is the one you thing you think a prospective Education student should know?

Never become discouraged by any classes or program requirements! The journey to becoming a good teacher is not an easy one, but it is definitely worth it in the end. You cannot become an amazing educator overnight, so keep working hard towards your dreams and goals and persevere, even through those 8am classes! P.S. join the mid-level program - it's the best!
