Noyce Mentoring Program: Summer 2015!

As part of our mentoring program, our first cohort of Noyce Interns, who just finished their first year of teaching, attended a Summer Institute in Cambridge, MA, from July  6-9, hosted by Engaging Schools.

Professor Rivera, Audrey Massmann, Kassidy Meck, Rebecca Battat

According to their website:

    Engaging Schools is a nonprofit organization that collaborates with educators in middle and high schools.
    We help them create a school-wide community of learning that integrates academic, social, and emotional development — and prepares each and every student to succeed.
    We offer professional development and resources with practical strategies that are grounded in the values of equity, community, and democracy. The result: educators who can better engage their students — and students who are prepared to make positive contributions in school, work, and life.

We had a great time at the institute and will report back about how we are using what we learned!
