Dr. Aspen Easterling Advising Coordinator


As Advising Coordinator and Licensure Certification Officer for Bemidji State University’s Teacher Education programs, I can assist with a variety of topics, including:

  • Information about our programs
  • Questions about admission to the Education program
  • Assistance in developing an individualized plan of study
  • Assistance with applications for graduation
  • Questions about licensure requirements and processes

Raised in Texas, I started my college career at a large university in my hometown and it was not a good fit for me. I began researching other options and after visiting BSU twice in the winter and once in the summer, I decided Bemidji was the place for me! I transferred to BSU in the fall of 2001, completing my bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Education. I then taught middle school computer/technology courses for several years in Colorado before returning to BSU in the fall of 2013.

I find great joy in helping students reach their goals of becoming teachers!
