As we begin school in the midst of the pandemic, practicing social distancing protocols and developing new skills for distance learning does not mean that we have restricted our minds and spirits. As people of faith and STEM Trustey Fellows, God has not given us a spirit of fear, but a spirit of power, of love, and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7). We must use this unprecedented time to encounter opportunities in all circumstances, to cultivate a sense of community in our niche interests, and to find different ways to stay faithful, joyful, creative, and connected. The meaningful “Ideas Worth Sharing Webinars” offered by our STEM family is one of the ways I have stayed connected.

How to Survive Your First STEM Lesson

I have always considered myself a lifelong learner, curious about the ever changing world around me. Always looking for ways to improve my teaching, three years ago I applied and became a Trustey Family STEM Teaching Fellow. I arrived on campus ready to work hard and learn. After participating in my first “Integrated STEM Experience,” I left Notre Dame’s campus motivated to bring STEM to my students the way the Trustey faculty brought it to life for all of us. I felt empowered in a way I had never felt before. I was a rock star ready to take on the world!
