Melanie Fowler, Ed.D.

Assistant Professor of Education

I believe that the deepest learning occurs through experience and reflection. Thus, I incorporate engaging activities and group discussions in my courses. I encourage my students to customize their learning experience by integrating their personal interests with the education-related themes that pique their curiosity. I strive to give students the tools they need to meet or exceed their goals so that they can make a positive impact on our community.
