Dr. Michael Bean
Assistant Professor of Education and Interim Assistant Provost
Dr. Bean is excited to be part of Concord’s Education Department, working with students he describes as respectful and ready to learn. One lesson Dr. Bean and our other faculty members teach Concord students is the reality of the profession. Through a variety of placements and teaching opportunities, or “in the fire” opportunities as Dr. Bean describes them, our students are prepared to enter the field.
“I have a passion for education. I see how that can open doors and create opportunities.”
Mikayla McMullen '18
Mikayla began her journey at Concord as an undecided major. After attending a conference with her mother, who is a business educator, she left inspired and acknowledged her desire to educate the younger generations about business. This ultimately began Mikayla’s journey in pursuing a degree in Education. Whether she was in the classroom or on the sidelines cheering on the Mountain Lions, she knew Concord was right for her. Mikayla earned her Bachelor of Science in Education and is now employed by Roanoke City Schools in Virginia as a Business Teacher. It Starts With You.
“From the moment I stepped foot on Concords campus I knew it was the right fit for me.”
Marcus Murrell '17
Marcus works to help new students through the enrollment process so that their transition to life at CU is easy, yet memorable. As an alum, Marcus knows first-hand the high quality and affordable education Concord offers, but that wasn’t all that drew him to the university. Marcus says it started in high school with his very first visit: “Although I was still in high school, I felt my presence was welcomed all over campus. This sense of individual welcoming on campus remained with me for the next four years.” Now that Marcus is an Admissions Counselor, he can share his experience with other prospective students. Call today and let Marcus tell you how CU is here for you.
