The fellowship has really had on impact on me in a variety of ways.
First, the fellowship put me out of my comfort zone to learn new skills and work with a team that I have never met before.
Second, the fellowship really pushed me to reach out to community members to bring into my classroom. This year alone I brought in a few project managers, two SAS employees, and invited Mrs. Hibler a for a few visits in my classroom.
Lastly, the fellowship really pushed me to learn. The PRL plan allowed me to focus on some professional development I have always wanted to complete, but not have time. This year alone I have studied and passed my SAS Base Certification, learned new project management software, currently studying for my Certified Associates in Project Management, and studying for my Advanced SAS Programmer.
