Welcome to the #DragonFamily: Whitney Mead

Meet Whitney Mead, a new assistant professor in the Speech Language Hearing Sciences program. She is teaching undergraduate courses as well as supervising the clinical practicum for graduate level students.

Q: What drew you to MSUM?

A: I have coffee, get my kids ready for the day, and then get to campus to get ready for my own day.

Q: What is something you are learning right now? 
A: I’ve been learning about teaching at the collegiate level and the technology that comes with it. I’ve also been learning to navigate life with two young kids.

Q: What is a piece of advice you like? 
A: Always be flexible. I think that’s an important piece of advice that comes into play in life and education.

Q: What is your favorite kind of dessert? 
A: Either cheesecake or Dairy Queen ice cream cakes.
