Discover Passion For Learning

Tiffany Fanning chose Canisius for its quality education, diverse learning opportunities, location in the city of Buffalo and campus life. “It was surprising and refreshing to be around other students who have a passion for learning,” she says.

She had always been a good student, but it wasn’t until she came to Canisius that Fanning discovered the depth of her curiosity. The college’s interdisciplinary approach taught her that she loved to learn from a variety of disciplines and subject areas. She earned a BA in adolescent education and history, and then, her MS in literacy 5-12 here.

She says her education here and the diverse experiences she took on have opened doors for her. She’s taught social studies and literacy at the secondary level. She earned her advanced certification in TESOL. And today, she is a certified literacy specialist at Tapestry Charter High School.
