Angela Cotromanes, Truman’s education department chair, teaches classes in both education and child development.
Angela works hard to help her students see their full potential, encourages them not to shy away from challenges, and supports them as much as possible. It is obvious that she loves what she does.
One of her students says, “Angela has made it her job to care for her students inside and out of the classroom, which I am sure is not in her job description. She wants to see us succeed, do our best and work on things that challenge us. When you think of a teacher who continuously makes an impact, you think of Angela Cotromanes. She is my role model in my career.”
Another student said, “Professor Cotromanes goes above and beyond the line of duty. She is a teacher, a therapist, and family all rolled into one person. She wants us to have all the tools we need to succeed in all our classes, not just hers. She is always ready to lend a helping hand or listen and offer her unconditional support in any way possible. She makes her classes interesting and relatable and puts extra work into her lesson plans and lectures that make you want to learn more and explore.”
In the spring of 2018, Professor Cotromanes received the faculty/staff Luminary Award at Truman College – watch this quick video to learn more about her.
