I am the Academic Advisor for the UAS School of Education BA programs. If you are interested in pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education or Special Education feel free to contact me!
One of my favorite things about UAS is that it is accessible, especially the programs at the School of Education. Many of the courses are online and there are whole degree programs where you don’t have to be on one of the main UAS campuses. There is nothing quite like becoming a teacher in your own Alaskan hometown!
I graduated from UAS with a Bachelor of Arts in English so that I could stay in Juneau while completing college. One of my goals was to pursue the MAT Secondary Education program through UAS but after observing some substitute teachers and classes I knew that teaching wasn’t the fit for me. Now I get the chance to work with adults and young adults so that they can achieve their dreams of becoming an educator.
