A Conversation with Jennifer Faunce
What would you tell a student who is considering A&M-Commerce?
We have some of the most caring faculty who have our students' best interests at heart. I believe you get a quality education at an affordable price, especially for our master’s and doctoral programs. Our graduate programs help prepare our students for their current or future careers.
What do you like most about your career at A&M-Commerce?
I love helping prospective students. I was a public school teacher for 11 years, so I understand when teachers call me and ask for advice on how they can advance their careers. Whether they want to become an instructional coach, instructional technologist or an administrator, I have the opportunity to recruit public school employees with our Quick Start grant. This grant is changing lives and helping students complete their graduate degrees.
