Our current scholars include (front left to right) Emily Perez, Arnold Rosas, Tania Lopez Robles, Caitlin Lobosco (graduated), Hunter Smith, Gianna Fazzini, and Amber Hammond. Our scholars are supported by faculty advisors (rear left to right) Dr. Joseph DiNapoli, Dr. Steven Greenstein, and Dr. Jennifer Robinson.

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.
