Career Accomplishments

A recent UTC graduate, Alex currently works as a teacher in Tennessee. She has spent most of her time as a sub in local school districts, but is currently pursuing a teaching position in Murfreesboro, TN. She observes the difficulty of entering a classroom for a day and gaining the respect and control a standard teacher would have, but appreciates the opportunity to practice her classroom management skills.

Thoughts on the UTC English Department

My professors were great, and I learned enough to get me started, although nothing can really prepare you for the physical demands of the job. I definitely appreciated my time with Dr. Prince, Aaron Shaheen, and of course Dr. Rehyansky.

Advice to Students

Have fun and enjoy yourself, but don’t let your studies slip; time management is so important in all aspects of life.
