“The college makes me feel as if I am in a university of 100 people.”

Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College student ambassadors are education majors who, in addition to their own preparation to be educators, take a leadership role in improving the experience for others. They answer questions for new students, host engagement events throughout the year and represent Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College to the community.

Take a moment to meet one of our ambassadors.

Moesha Crawford is a Special Education and Elementary Education major preparing to be a fifth-grade teacher in her community in Glendale, Arizona. As a Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College ambassador, she says, “I love how we are our own community within a huge university! The college makes me feel as if I am one person in a university of 100 people, not 70,000 or more.”

Book that had the biggest impact on you:

“The Outsiders” by S.E. Hinton. It was a great way to show others, don't judge a book by its cover. It may be hard on the outside, but have a heart of gold.

Real-life teacher who inspired you:

Daniel Darrow, my AP Government teacher and Aspire to Teach instructor. He was so inspirational and pushed his students to achieve the best. He saw a spark in me that I never noticed and molded me into the person I aspired to and continue to strive to be.

Biggest risk you ever took, and what you learned from it:

Learning to be independent and make my own decisions. I went into these decisions blindsided with no support and learned this is what was best for me as a student and person. Being independent made me realize focusing and aiming to better myself is the best decision anyone can make.

Biggest mistake:

Taking my senior year of high school for granted. I wish I could do it all over again and focus more on trying to have fun than on stressing out about college and my future. I wish I had the chance to experience more, work less and not be so stressed.

Favorite movie quote:

“You still have a lot of time to make yourself be what you want. There's a lot of good in the world." — “The Outsiders”

Advice you would give your 18-year-old self:

The world is made of many people without a plan and without many other things as well. Breathe, look around yourself and know that what you have is special. There's no need to take any of this for granted.
