Heather Jackson | Danville Community High School | Danville, IN

“STEM Teach has been a wonderful experience for me!  I have taken graduate-level courses in Chemistry and Biology to meet the Higher Learning Commission requirements for teaching dual-credit Chemistry and Biology at ZERO cost (even the books are covered)! The staff at STEM Teach has been extremely helpful in answering questions and walking me through the application process as well as helping me sign up for classes. In addition to classes, there are also opportunities to participate in conferences around the state. I would encourage all teachers to participate in this amazing 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!”
