Know that you have a support system at Ashford University.
Dr. Angela Dallas
Dr. Angela Dallas is an Assistant Professor in Ashford University’s College of Education. She holds a Doctorate of Education Instructional Leadership from Argosy University, a Master’s of Education from the University of West Alabama, and a Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education from Concordia College Alabama.
Dr. Dallas began her education career as a kindergarten and first-grade teacher, eventually transitioning to administrative roles during her 17-years in a PreK-12 environment. She spent seven years in higher education, as an Assistant Professor of Education, Field Experience Coordinator, Assessment Coordinator, and Teacher Certification Officer. Dr. Dallas has seen her work published in the Journal of Teaching & Learning and Journal of Current Issues in Education, among others.
A lifelong learner, Dr. Dallas said her favorite thing about teaching is “empowering students by keeping them encouraged and motivated” during their courses, and “planting the seeds of expecting positive outcomes.”
Working under the belief that students are entitled to “quality instruction in active, stimulating, positive learning environments,” Dr. Dallas described her new role at Ashford as one in which she hopes to provide a support system of a “hand up” rather than a “hand out.”
Her biggest piece of advice to students at any age: Manage your time. “Procrastination is not your friend,” she said.
