Education Student Balances Activism and Learning

Alyssa Molinski, school of education undergraduate student in Early Childhood Education program.

Even before she graduates, Alyssa Molinski already has experience juggling two demanding jobs.

She is a student in the School of Education’s Early Childhood Education program and has also served as the Student Association president for 2018-2019.

Molinski, who grew up in Menomonee Falls, says her family inspired her to go into education.

“I come from a family of educators, so that’s what made me choose teaching. Also, I’m the oldest of four children. Growing up, we always played school and naturally I had to be the teacher. I would never allow anybody else to do it.”
