Noyce Scholars Learn A Lot at The Second Annual Northeast Conference


From October 11th to October 13th, the five cohorts of Noyce scholars, MfA teaching fellows, and MfA Master Teachers had the opportunity to attend the second annual Noyce Northeast Conference.  The conference was hosted by UMass Boston, Drexel University, and SUNY Courtland.   Scholars and fellows had an opportunity to attend workshops and network.   Kayla Scheitlin (MfA ’13) commented, “It was great to meet other Noyce scholars and current teachers.”   Danielle Pike (MfA ’13) added, “Even though I am a pre-service teacher, I felt that I was already part of the math teacher community.”

Highlighting the experience for many of the Noyce pre-service teachers was the opportunity to attend a number of sessions on surviving the first year of teaching and a session with a recruiter from the Boston Public Schools.  Scheitlin noted, “I got some great interviewing and first year teaching tips!”

By the end of the three days, all the scholars were eager to return to their graduate classes or classrooms to use some many of the ideas they had learned about.
