Describe ways your fellowship has changed you. Consider how you collaborate with peers, discover new talents and learn about STEM careers.
The fellowship has shown me that the best way to grow and to learn is to play with teachers. Professional developments, readings, online seminars, textbooks etc, are all find sources of material. But the best growth comes from connecting with others who share your passion for growth and exploration. This has caused me to shift the framing of my summers from “recovery time” to “exploration time.” Nothing recharges the spirit and creative mojo quite like sharing some experiences and laughs with some fellow crazy educators. So the biggest change would be the commitment to consistently go out and find new experiences!
