  • Alex Kubiak

    Alex couldn't get enough of EMU during her undergrad, so she decided to come back to continue her studies. Her B.A. is in German Language and Literature with a minor in English Linguistics, and she is currently pursuing her M.A. in TESOL. Alex loves working with EMU students and believes that she can strongly influence them to not only succeed academically, but to succeed in all aspects of life. She says that, "With every student comes a special story and a unique experience. I believe that it is through self discovery that we find how to empower and motivate ourselves. Throughout my own journey, I have acquired some useful tools that have taken me far, and I look forward to sharing these tools with my students. I believe that by encouraging students to take such an introspective outlook, these tools can assist them in achieving their own understanding of success."
