Amber Spears, Ed.S-Early Childhood Education
I currently working in my 5th year at TTU. I serve as a full-time Instructor in the department of Curriculum and Instruction. I am teaching courses both on and off campus. I have spent the past 4 years working with the 2+2 program, which serves students who seek to become elementary teachers and attend courses taught at community colleges around the state. I have been honored to be part of such an amazing program!
I became part of the Tennessee Tech University family when I joined on as Instructor in Summer 2009. Prior to accepting my position at TTU, I spent 4 years in the public school setting teaching 1st grade. My education background includes a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education, a Master's Degree in Literacy, and an Ed.S. in Early Childhood Education. I am currently seeking my PhD in Exceptional Learning with a concentration in Literacy. My research interests include the literacy practices of families of children ages birth to age four.
