Why I chose WOUA few years ago, I took a year off to do volunteer work, and WOU was one of the places that I volunteered. I immediately fell in love with the small campus and "family" environment here. People at WOU genuinely care about each other and about the students.

Areas of responsibility
Welcome to Western Oregon's Teacher Education Program! It is my pleasure to advise students who are planning to become licensed teachers through WOU's Undergraduate Teacher Education Program, and I welcome early inquiries from students who are beginning at community colleges and planning to transfer to WOU their junior year. My role includes traveling each term to many of the Oregon community colleges to do early advising with potential transfer students, meeting with current WOU students to help them explore career options, develop a term by term course plan, access campus resources, and apply for the Professional Teacher Licensure Program. Visit our advising page. Schedule an appointment.
