Teaching Teams Program Coordinator

Andrew Charles is a Program Coordinator of the Teaching Teams program and a UA graduate from the Class of 2016. He holds a Bachelor's of the Arts in Linguistics and a Minor in the Spanish Language. As an instructor Andrew tries to emphathize with every single one of his students to help them feel that they truly are a worthy investment of time and an asset to their classmates. Philosphically Andrew believes that through interdisciplinary facilitation we are recreating the original ideals of the University System. His interests include language evolution, history, binging Netflix and Hulu, and collecting pens.
