My name is Carlos Zapata, and I an academic advisor in the Advising Center for Education and General Studies. I received my undergraduate degree from Indiana University, Bloomington, in Special Education – Elementary Education. Upon graduating from IUB, I taught both in the elementary and special education settings.

After teaching for four years, I decided to take the position of academic advisor. I love my job and the flexibility that comes with it. I enjoy watching college students grow, mature, and foster the knowledge they receive. It is a transformative experience and I love that I get to be a part of it. Currently, I am working on Master’s of Liberal Studies degree. After receiving this degree, it is my hope to return back to the classroom to teach speech communication at IU Kokomo or a community college.
