Alli received her B.A. in Communications with a major in Public Relations from Virginia Tech. She spent a few years working at Eastman Chemical in Kingsport, TN before deciding her to pursue her dream of becoming a teacher. After taking some initial content area courses for elementary education, she will complete her endorsement in PK-6 Elementary Education with a M.ED in Professional Studies in May 2019.
“My experience and time at Emory & Henry has been nothing short of incredible. Two years ago, I made the life-changing decision to go back to school for my Masters degree in Education three years after finishing my undergraduate degree. After spending time in the corporate world, I took a leap of faith and decided to pursue my actual dreams of becoming an educator. Thanks to the instrumental support of the remarkable professors, advisors, and staff at Emory & Henry by my side each and every step of the way, I am finally able to make those dreams a reality. With the help of everyone at Emory & Henry, I can proudly say I am prepared to become an educator knowing I am on the path to success.”
