    Ellie Favell '09 

    Fulbright Scholar

     

    Maternal influence
    My mother was an amazing example of a strong woman and taught me that I can do almost anything as long as I work hard enough.

    Best Hamline memory
    From serving as a resident assistant to my study abroad experience to my friends and professors, it's impossible to pick just one.

    Favorite professors
    The religion department is amazing. Deanne Thompson, Timothy Polk, and Mark Berkson are Hamline treasures who contribute so much to the Hamline community. Also, Meg Hobday, Kari Richtsmeier, Sonja Matthews, and Jeanne Kosieradzki are phenomenal. What makes all of these people so special is their constant commitment to the students and their unwavering standards for our education.

    Fulbright plans
    I will be an assistant English teacher at a secondary school in Germany. I am so excited to be able to teach again. Hamline's wonderful TEFL program in the School of Education gave me hands-on experience in an ESL classroom.

    Future plans
    After the Fulbright, I hope to attend graduate school and obtain a master of education degree and licensure in ESL and possibly German.

    Advice from a winner
    Explore as much as you can and use the resources available to you. Your experience at Hamline can be so much more than a piece of paper after four years. Study abroad, even if only for a J- or May-term.
