Description: This paper discusses The Oral History Project and research on becoming an educator. Abstract: The Oral History Project offers an inside perspective to the Latina/o professors currently at the University of North Texas (UNT). This project gave students the opportunity to learn about the educational, personal, and professional trajectory of these professors and will acquaint the UNT community with the diverse experiences and perspectives of professors. Dr. Molina acts as a bridge between teachers-to-be and the diverse population of students with whom they will be working. By balancing all aspects of her life, she was capable of achieving what others would consider an impossible task. Dr. Molina emphasizes the importance of choice, and how her choices shaped the path that led her to where she is today.
