This summer I was part of a partnership with CommScope allowing me to work alongside Doug Blew, VP of Global Manufacturing Engineering. Together we partnered to develop curriculum to better prepare local students for STEM-based degree programs. What does this partnership mean to me? It means that I have a mutual responsibility to take the valuable information that was given to me from CommScope and to bring it to life inside the classroom.
The Kenan Fellowship not only partners a fellow with a mentor, but also creates a partnership with community by utilizing the local media. Because of this partnership with the media, I have been able to collaborate with the local American Radio Relay League to assist in developing lesson plans that tie HAM communications into science curriculum. I also have been able to collaborate with other teachers in the district who want to know and learn about STEM in the middle school.
