Sasha Chang

From Thinking About Teaching to Teaching in Actuality

As a freshman in 2011-12, Sasha enrolled in the Thinking About Teaching FIG. She first learned about FIGs from the Big FIG Book, and actually snagged the last spot available in her FIG! “The structure and schedule of the FIG in the first term was helpful to get and keep me on track,” Sasha said. Her FA brought in an academic advisor to talk about the EDST major, which gave Sasha a template of scheduling for future terms. Because of the academic advising session, she learned that she had to take an EDST and science class each term in order to stay on track for graduation.
