Sofia Morales, COD Student, Comments to the BOT | Sept 19, 2019

My name is Sofia Morales, I am a College of DuPage student. I’m currently working to earn my Associate in Arts degree and my long-term goal is to become a special education teacher. Currently I’m a member and actively involved with IEA (Illinois Education Association) and SEA (student education association). I am the Kappa Delta Pi President of College of DuPage.

The faculty here at COD have made such a positive impact on my college experience. They show me that I should never give up on myself and they’re always there for me when I need help. I have had a learning disability my whole life and it can be so difficult for me grasp new concepts and perform well on tests.

Luckily, the COD faculty has been very supportive of me and work to understand my learning disability. They go above and beyond to make the material manageable. I believe the COD faculty have done so much for many students like myself and they deserve to have a fair contract. I stand with the COD faculty.
