Letter from your Associate Dean; Dr. Tareilo

To the Students, Faculty, and Staff;

I would like to thank you all for your warm welcome and patience as I have settled into the position of Associate Dean of Student Services and Advising for the Perkins College of Education. Since June 2014 when I took the position of Associate Dean, I have been working very diligently to learn as much as I can about the workings of the advising office and the best ways to serve the students, staff, and faculty of our college.

My responsibilities to you as students of the College of Education center on assisting you with ways to stay in school as well as finding sources to secure your success at SFA. This entails a review of transcripts, meeting with students concerning academic needs, and helping you network with university resources. You are of the utmost importance to us.

For faculty, I am responsible for the PCOE College Curriculum Committee, professional development opportunities, student appeals, situations concerning academic honesty, and a variety of other duties. I welcome the chance to work with you as we help the students of our college.

I am so fortunate to work with specialists in the field of student advising. Our office is dedicated to helping students be successful in their personal and professional lives. Each of our advisors assists students in creating a course of study that leads to their graduation and hopefully, their future jobs and professional roles. Every fall our office will host a Student Success Initiative that focuses on freshman and their success in college. We hope you join us on that special day. Additionally throughout the year, the office staff participates in supporting various university experiences such as freshman orientations, campus visits, and Homecoming events.

There are several ways to stay in contact with our office. You can reach us by phone at 936-468-2901, on our website, and by following our Facebook and Twitter pages.

My first few months have been very busy and allowed me to meet several students and work closely with faculty. I look forward to working with you in the future and please do not hesitate to visit our office if and when I can be of help.

With highest regard,

Dr. Janet Tareilo, Ed.D.


An upcoming "New and Newer" faculty support meeting will soon be announced. These

gatherings offer the opportunity to collaborate with other faculty, seek answers to questions, obtain

important PCOE information all while enjoying some delicious snacks. If you wish to be included on

the 2015/2016 roster for this group or would just like more information, please contact Dr. Tareilo.
