After over twenty years of public education service, Chovich joined the faculty of Colorado Mesa University in 2007. Chovich’s expertise is in language and literacy acquisition and development. She also teaches integrated technology, assessment, curriculum and instruction, and educational pedagogy.
Chovich’s teaching philosophy while in public education was to meet the individual needs of her students through innovative and creative teaching strategies. She continues this practice at the higher education level while also motivating and educating future teachers. Chovich teaches her students not only about the content and techniques they need to be effective educators but about the critical role they will soon have in a child’s life. She always reminds her students that the world will be just fine because looking into the eyes of tomorrow is a teacher.
