Faculty & Staff
The faculty and staff of the College of Education are a diverse group in background, life experience, areas of study. What draws them together? You. From experts in educational administration to community engagement, they're at your side from day one of your journey.
COE faculty and staff speak at national conferences, publish in academic and professional journals, engage (often with students) in community projects. In addition to teaching, they advance knowledge and create dialogue on topics as varied as social justice in the classroom to how exercise impacts cognitive function.
Everyone is here to challenge, support, mentor, guide, connect. And to celebrate accomplishments beyond your expectations.
Paying It Forward
"Whenever I see a student realizing or exceeding their expectations, I am reminded that I chose the right career path. We are in a 'pay it forward' business. I hope happy and accomplished graduates from the teacher preparation program will pay it forward by nurturing their students to become the best versions of themselves." — Magda Galloway, instructor, curriculum & instructionMeet Magda Galloway
"The future of teacher education, and K-16 and beyond education, should honor the ongoing civil rights movements toward transformative inclusion for ALL... We need teacher education programs that account for the full humanity of our students and families." — David Hernandez-Saca, assistant professor, special educationDavid Hernandez-Saca: Perspectives
Finding the Traits to Succeed
"To me, the two most important qualities for a student to possess are critical thinking skills and just being a good person. The combination of both of those traits will allow them to succeed in all aspects of life." — Jacob Reed, assistant professor, kinesiologyMeet Jacob Reed
