Oakvale, West Virginia
Hannah is a first generation Mountain Lion and majoring in Secondary Education with an emphasis in English. Hannah transferred to Concord during her freshman year, throughout her previous experience at another university she never truly felt at home. She found her way to Concord University and found the sense of community she was looking for. Specifically, Hannah has loved the class sizes at Concord and the fact that no matter where you go or who you talk to, you will see a smile. The welcoming and genuine community found at Concord has made Hannah’s experience an enjoyable atmosphere to learn and grow in.
“Through CU not only have I been able to pursue my dreams, but I have been able to take advantage of an abundance of opportunities for personal growth.”

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.”
