2014-2015 Educator Academy Mentors


Lea Fordyce
I am an Elementary Education STEM (focus: math) major, hoping to eventually teach 5th or 6th grade. I love to read books, watch Netflix, and grow plants! I am also a part of Omega Phi Alpha, a national service sorority here on campus.


Tanya Reyes
I am a sophomore studying Elementary Education - Bilingual/English as a Second Language. I am the current President of Reach2Teach, a professional development student organization, and appreciate the many opportunities to get involved within the Teachers College. I have enjoyed meeting the excellent faculty members present on campus and look forward to making even more connections this year.


Risa Stuart
I am a sophomore majoring in Secondary Education-Math. I began the iTeachAZ program a year early and absolutely love being in the classroom! Having been a part of the Educators Academy I have built such a strong relationship with one of our assistant deans (Connie Pangrazi), that we are now on a first name basis. Arizona State University is such a large place and the Teachers College makes it smaller, but being a part of this elite program I feel that I have a close-knit family community, and I would not trade that for anything!
