Why do you want to be in this program and why are you excited to be a part of it?
I got into the I-IMPACT program so that I can continually grow into a better teacher and leader without having to leave the students. I’m also looking forward to working with pre-service teachers to help them not only survive, but thrive those first few years. I hope to collaborate with the veteran and pre-service teachers to get fresh new ideas into the class.
What qualities does a teacher leader possess that you would like to develop within yourself by the end of the program?
Teacher leaders have the ability to positively impact students outside their own classroom. I hope to learn the skills needed to truly have a collaborative instructional team that uses data to drive instruction.
What is a current issue in K-12 science education that you are interested in helping to solve?
STEM Programs (starting a program, building business partnerships, cross-curricular collaboration) Use of technology in the classroom
