Dawson Hughes

My name is Dawson and I am a fourth-year student studying education and political science. I plan on being a high school Social Studies teacher. Other than being a student and working as a College of Education Student Ambassador, I am involved with the Young Democratic Socialists of America at OSU and I enjoy spending time with my dog, Meatball.

Tiffany Vui Martin

Hi my name is Tiffany, I am a senior majoring in WGSS and minoring in Education. I hope to teach elementary primary K-3.   I have always wanted to be a teacher to change lives and inspire young students to achieve their dreams and aspirations.  

Nathan Ratalsky

I’m a fifth-year education and history double degree student with a focus in secondary education. I’m from Oregon, and as a result of our beautiful wildlife and nature here in the Pacific Northwest, I’ve developed a love for hiking and backpacking. In my free time, you can find me out on a trail or at home playing my ukulele. 

Angelina Rivas

I am an Ethnic Studies and Education Major with a Spanish Minor. I am also a Senior in the university. I identify as a bi-ethnic Latina, as my heritage is Mexican-Salvadoran raised in the US.  I started crochet during the quarantine and it’s become something I truly enjoy. I also have a lot of houseplants and I would like to have more than 100 healthy houseplants one day. 

C. Alex Varela

My name is Alex! I'm a Junior 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 am currently writing 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.
