Degree Program:MEd/EdS in School Psychology

Hello everyone! I am a current graduate student in School Psychology! Before graduate school, I graduated from Loyola University Chicago with a B.A in Psychology and Criminal Justice. I am passionate about educational equity and working collaboratively with students to establish goals to help them be successful. While at LUC, I worked as a building manager at Halas Recreation Center which allowed me to help guide others to achieve their goals and stay motivated. Additionally, I worked in the Psychology Department as a research assistant studying educational STEM opportunities. This position allowed me to learn more about goal development and implementation. I’ve been in Chicago now for 5 years, and have absolutely fallen in love with its tall buildings and the lakeshore path. I’ve really enjoyed my time as an undergraduate student at Loyola, and I hope to help other students make the best of their experience as well. Outside of school and work I enjoy hiking, baking, running, and traveling. 

Fun Fact: I have a collection of maps and globes, 11 in counting. I might have one too many!

Degree Program: Clinical Mental Health Counseling

Hello! I am currently a graduate student in the Clinical Mental Health Counseling Program. I have a strong interest in social justice, and I know that all students at Loyola have a passion for it too. I know that college can be stressful and I look forward to helping students manage their academics and succeed in college.

I grew up in Chicago, and pursued by undergraduate degree at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I have a B.A. in Psychology, with minors in Gender and Women Studies and Criminal Justice. My time in Wisconsin was so amazing, but I am so excited to be back in the city! I feel most at home when I hear the "L" rattle past my window, or someone laying on the horn outside.

Fun Fact: I have been skydiving twice (in Wisconsin and Switzerland)!

Bartosz Morawski

Pronouns: He/Him 

Hometown: Palos Hills, IL 

Degree Program: MA in International Affairs 

Hey everyone! My name is Bartosz and I am working on my MA in International Relations. I started my undergraduate career at a community college and transferred to Lewis University in Romeoville, IL, where I received my BA in International Relations. I'm interested in European politics, specifically Central and Eastern European politics, and my passion for this region and languages pushed me to pursue a degree in this path. As a first-generation college student, I understand the stress of trying to understand how college works and debating constantly if the degree I'm pursuing is right for me. In my career so far, I have experience with teaching and tutoring. I taught at a Polish school and served with City Year. My experience at City Year taught me how to set goals for students and help them achieve them. 

During my free time, I workout, listen to music and enjoy taking pictures. I'm also a Polish folk dancer, which allowed me to perform in front of large audiences. I'm fluent in both Polish and English in addition to knowing some French, German, and Russian (I am also learning some Ukrainian on the side). 

Fun Fact: I have been a Polish folk dancer for about 18 years.
