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 I also love 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!

I am a sophomore majoring in early childhood education and minoring in TESOL K–12. I am a transfer student from Mesa Community College. I love food, traveling, spending time with my family, cooking/baking, and doing things outdoors! I love children and have worked as a nanny for over ten years. I have always wanted to be a teacher and cannot wait to one day have a classroom of my own!

Ashley Zundel

Physical Education Teaching/Coaching Major

I am a sophomore majoring in PE Teaching/Coaching and minoring in Health. I love music, spending time with friends and family, playing volleyball, and going to the beach. I love teaching because it allows me to be able to make a difference in the life of another person. I always knew I wanted a career that would allow me to help others, and this major was a great fit. I am so excited to continue learning and sharing my passion with others!


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! They were some of the most influential people in my life who 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.
