Troy Huber, President

"It is important for a teacher to have passion so they can inspire passion in students as well.” - Troy Huber

Elaine Coppe, Vice President

"At IWU, I learned that a teacher's most important job is to help the student, not only academically, but also emotionally. The academic needs of a student are an important part of that student's life, but teachers can affect students in more ways than they could imagine." - Elaine Coppe

Meg Stanley, Secretary


Elena Duve, Treasurer


  Sydney Seeman,
Social/Service Chair

“I have already learned so much from being in the Ed Studies program here at IWU. I love that the program focuses on being an advocate for social justice in the classroom. I came into the program knowing a little about social justice, but now I know the importance and different ways to implement social justice in the classroom.” - Sydney Seeman
