Getting here:

A New-Englander through and through, I first looked for a school near the place that I call home. I also wanted to study to become a teacher at a place where I shared the teaching-philosophy of the institution, COA has been that place.

Favorite class:

One of my favorite classes has been Intercultural Education. As a student and pre-service teacher it provided me with the chance to delve deeply into understanding my role in the classroom with regards to race, gender, class, culture, and more.

COA might be the right college for you if...

You love to ask questions and explore new ideas, are kind of quirky, and have a favorite brand of socks.

Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
