Valery Abila

Elementary Education Major

I am a junior majoring in Elementary Education and minoring in TESOL K-12. I am from Georgia; I love music, spending time with family and friends, and road trips! Growing up, my teachers were some of my biggest role models who I looked up to as some of the most influential people in my life. They taught me to love learning and to love going to school. I want to be that person for my future students and pass the love of learning to them as well.

Anna Glenn

Special Education Major

I am a junior majoring in Special Education with an emphasis in mild/moderate disabilities. My minor is TESOL K-12. Some of my hobbies include baking, eating, sports, naps, and deep conversations. I absolutely love learning and I want to help others love it too. After working with individuals of differing abilities in high school, I realized I love special education and thought I’d give it a try. I’ve been hooked ever since my first CPSE class. I look forward to helping students with disabilities learn to break through the barriers of an ableist world.

Lauren Myers

Early Childhood Education Major

I am a sophomore majoring in Early Childhood Education and minoring in TESOL K–12. I am a first generation college student from Navarre, Florida. I love traveling, spending time with my family, and anything outdoors! I want to be a teacher because when I think about the people who have made a great impact in my life, I think of teachers. I want to be an advocate for younger children who are often unable to have a voice.

Stefania Amado

Elementary Education Major

I am a senior majoring in Elementary Education with a TESOL minor. I am originally from Guatemala, but I was raised in Houston, Texas. I am proud of being from both places! I love watching movies, cooking, going out with my friends, dancing at parties, finding new music for my playlists, spending time with my family, and animals! I want to become a teacher because I want to bring blessings to the lives of others. I believe teachers have the most impact on the coming generations and I want to use teaching to steer children towards a more positive future. I have a passion for helping people see their potential. As a teacher, I hope I can help children believe in themselves!
