The Noyce Scholarship Program aims to prepare effective elementary mathematics teachers to change the world by teaching elementary-level mathematics in high-need communities. Caitlin recently graduated and just started a teaching position at Ola Edwards Elementary School.
During the convening, scholars discussed their latest experiences including spending time in classrooms during student teaching or Clinical I and II placements, tutoring peers for the Math Praxis Exam, conducting original research as part of their MATH 491: Mathematics Education Research class, and interviewing for teaching jobs. Additionally, the convening was catered by Chipotle, which was fantastic! If you are interested in becoming a Noyce Scholar at MSU, which includes a financial scholarship, stipend, and a promise to work for 2-4 years in a high-needs school upon graduation, please read more about the program.
