C. Alex Varela

Student Ambassador

My name is Alex! I'm a Senior at OSU, and I'm pursuing degrees in History and Education with a focus in Secondary Social Studies. I am deeply passionate about cultivating equity in education through the practice of a social justice pedagogy. I completed my Honors Thesis on the ways in which we can restructure 9-12 Social Studies curriculum to center the experience of marginalized groups while still executing upon the State Social Studies Standards. I am currently in student teaching and can help students prepare for the application process or what to expect for student teaching.
