Debra Atkinson While a college professor in the field of communication for 17 years (with a BA in English/History and a MA in English/Rhetoric), my first degree was in elementary education with an emphasis in special education. Complementing my teaching career, I have earned the highest level of certification in tutoring (Level III in Texas) through UTA's tutorial program. Most of my private tutoring is with elementary aged children. In fact, after being hired to tutor a five-year-old (in 2010), the parents hired me to develop a kindergarten/1st grade home-school curriculum for their son who had lagged behind in kindergarten. Within 5 months, he increased his reading and vocabulary skills to a 2nd grade level.

My personal philosophy is bound to education, and the rewards students experience when they develop new critical thinking skills; for once these skills are established, they help to shift a student from being extrinsically motivated, and dependent on others, to intrinsically motivated, and therefore an independent thinker-a major academic rite of passage. As an educator, my greatest joy is to watch as learners of any age rise above their doubts or concerns and accomplish formative goals…the many milestones in the learning curve of life. Once a friend asked me, "Have you ever felt euphoric?" Without hesitation, I replied, "Every time I'm in class with my students."

Tracy Autem Tracy is an alumni and received her Bachelors in Fine Arts with a concentration in Photography from UTA.

A Lucy Barragan

I was born in Colombia, South America. For most of my life I was educated in an all-female boarding school, at a time when the women of the house were not allowed to go to college, because a blend of boys and girls in the same place was not a choice. All throughout my formative years, reading was required first by my mother at home and then at school. While children in my neighborhood where playing with their friends inside or out of their homes, we were compelled to read and discuss the contents of the books. Since my mother's side of the family produced a line of low and high profile politicians and diplomats, our education, both tutorial and in school, emphasized local and world politics as well as global geography and its socio-economic impact.

Later in my life, in the USA, while studying marketing, I worked at Berlitz to earn extra money. But there was another purpose: to learn their very exclusive and distinct method of teaching that has now become a very popular and no doubt the best way to learn a language - Total Immersion. My love for the language and the great satisfaction of watching the results convinced me that this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. Today, and every day, I know I made the right decision, as a number of my private students can now read literature and understand movies made in Spanish, without the help of translations.

I am a working artist who works and teaches in, watercolor, oils, acrylics, pastels, and mixed media. I teach watercolor and drawing classes in the Continuing Education program at UTA in Arlington. I teach an oil, or acrylic on canvas class at Trinity Art Guild’s Gallery in Bedford. I also teach a watercolor class every two months at the Up Stairs Gallery in Arlington.

I am very proud of my B.F.A., Magnum Cum Laude in painting and drawing with an English minor from the U.N.T. in Denton. I pursued this dream of mine later in life, after I had traveled and lived in Europe for many years. Being a little older and having traveled and lived extensively overseas, I came to the University with a different perspective on life. I continue my studies by taking workshops from other artists and have spent two summers painting on location at the La Romita School of Art in Italy.

I belong to many art organizations----locally and nationally and am a signature member of the Southwestern Watercolor Society in Dallas, Society of Watercolor Artists in Fort Worth and Texas Neighbors in Irving. I have served as President for the Southwestern Watercolor Society of Dallas for the 2004-05 year. My work has received numerous awards in local, regional, and national shows over the years and continues to do so.

My subject matter comes from personal photo’s from my travels and objects I collect. The travel I have done and continue to do introduces me to history, cultures, and philosophies that have a major impact on my work. Turkey, for example, opened my eyes and thoughts to the eastern philosophy. From this I began to see the connection between their views and the philosophy of the American Indians in our Southwest. New thoughts lead to new connections and interests. My work involves the interconnecting strings that hold time and place together. I like to experiment and find new ways to use materials, design principals, and color to help get my idea or concept across in my paintings. Ultimately I strive for a balanced, yet exciting painting that can be enjoyed on many levels.
