Hannah (Myers) Toews received her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology in May of 2014 from the University of Kansas. Hannah is currently working towards obtaining a Ph.D. in School Psychology at the University of Kansas with hopes to work with elementary-aged children with diverse learning needs. Hannah played club soccer as an undergraduate student and worked on undergraduate research in a clinical child psychology lab.
Hannah started working as a Graduate Teaching Assistant for UNIV 101 in the Fall of 2015 and is passionate about teaching and making connections with new-to-KU students.
“My first year in college I had enough flexibility in my schedule to take classes from several disciplines in order to help me decide what major path to take; I took classes in Journalism, Biology, Psychology, and Women and Gender Studies and realized that I loved psychology. I got an on-campus job, tried out for the club soccer team, and sought out undergraduate research opportunities. There were a lot of bumps along the way but trying new things and putting myself out there made me more confident in myself and my abilities and allowed me to find my place at the university.”
