I graduated from UNA in May of 2020 after completing my student internship. I received my Bachelor of Science in Education with a concentration in English Language Arts (ELA). I have received my teaching credential from the state of Alabama and have successfully passed all necessary praxis exams. I also took and passed an additional praxis exam for English as a Second Language (ESL) to better assist students whose first language is something other than English.


My student teaching was done through UNA's internship program. I completed my student teaching at Florence Middle School in spring of 2020. For more information on UNA's education internship program look here.


I am proud to announce that I have successfully submitted and passed the EdTPA requirement. According to their website, "EdTPA is a performance-based, subject-specific assessment and support system used by teacher preparation programs throughout the United States to emphasize, measure and support the skills and knowledge that all teachers need from Day 1 in the classroom."
