Abbie Graham

Abbie Graham
Sophomore, Secondary Education (English)

My professional goals include becoming a teacher in high school, eventually receiving my MA (possibly in bilingual education). 

I am the office assistant/communications coordinator of Project Humanities and the president of their student initiative ASUPHS'I (Arizona State University Project Humanities Students' Initiative). I am also a member of WOW Factor, a subdivision of the Respect movement on campus; SunDABT (Sun Devils Are Better Together); and SDWP (Sun Devils Wear Prada). I attend HOPE Christian Church. Basically, I'm really involved on campus and go to most of the major sporting events and other events. 

The thing I enjoy the most at Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College is the sense of community. Everyone is so inviting and very passionate about what they do or are working towards. It's a comfortable feeling, and it makes me feel proud to be a future educator who will graduate from ASU.

Sophomore, Elementary and Special Education Major

My future plans include having my own classroom and teaching kids every day. I’m involved in Chi Omega, I am the Reach2Teach President for our Teachers College Council, and I’m a Barrett student. 

I love that Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College has a small, welcoming community! The class sizes are perfect for getting to know your peers and professors. Also, all of the faculty are great at engaging with students, they clearly love what they do, and they want us to love it, too. I also loved attending Camp Teach as a freshman.
