Angela Cobian '11

Teacher, Teach for America, Colorado

Political Science Major, Spanish Minor
Young Alumni Trustee at CC
Recipient of a Fulbright Scholarship to teach English in Mexico

“I am in my second year of Teach for America in Colorado. I teach second and third grade in an English language acquisition classroom at Cole Arts and Sciences Academy in Denver. I am also concurrently studying for my master's in curriculum and instruction through the University of Colorado-Denver.”

Key milestones?

“A key transition from CC to my current pursuits in education was my minority politics class. The class allowed me to think of education through a political framework. That is, viewing the inequities in education as a form of institutionalized racism, as well as a detriment to the future of our civil society.”

Future aspirations?

“I want to mobilize minority communities in a way that empowers them to better their local schools, as well as create programs and policies that support such work.”

Benefits of your CC education in the real world?

“Yes, knowing how to accomplish the impossible in a short amount of time. A supervisor at Rep. Diana DeGette's Constituent Services office specifically mentioned this characteristic among her CC interns.”
