Gilda Martinez Alba 

Professor and Chair, Department of Educational Technology and Literacy

“I came to TU because it is well known in the state as a leader in teacher education and because it was a metropolitan university, where collaboration often occurs. I have stayed for the past 10 years because it continues to be a cohesive environment where I can work together with my colleagues toward goals and feel supported in my efforts by the administration.”
