Ashley Bean | West Central High School | Francesville, IN
“I recently completed 18 graduate credits through STEM Teach from Indiana Wesleyan University in Mathematics to earn my Graduate Mathematics Teaching Certificate with absolutely no financial costs to me! Thanks to the STEM Teach III program, I now meet the Higher Learning Commission requirement for teaching dual-credit Pre-Calculus and Calculus. The application process and the teacher portal was easy to navigate through and the STEM Teach staff was very helpful and quick to respond to questions. I would highly recommend taking advantage of this wonderful opportunity!”
Plymouth High School | Plymouth, IN
“Several science and math instructors at Plymouth High School have taken advantage of the courses within the STEM Teach offerings to achieve the elevated credentialing necessary by 2022. We are thrilled that two of these teachers have already completed their course work and are now fully credentialed in the areas of physics and mathematics. The teachers said their main goal in taking on this opportunity was to continue to provide our students the chance to earn college credit in their dual credit high school courses. They enjoy teaching these challenging courses and seeing our students achieve success!”
