AlumLeadership in Teaching: Literacy Specialist/Coach (Reading Specialist)
Notre Dame of Maryland University has equipped me to be an effective reading specialist by the rigorous instruction and guidance that I received during my course of study. I learned current theories and practices from both my professors and my peers.
The STEM program at Notre Dame has made a life changing impact on my teaching and learning. I enrolled in the program with limited knowledge of what STEM is and now I’m able to support others in my school where needed. The best part of my experiences were constant hands-on learning opportunities and building long lasting relationships with my teachers and peers. It has enabled me, coached me, and given me the confidence to incorporate STEM in my classroom. I’m a proud alumni of this program at NDMU.
Operation TEACH, NDMU Class of 2019Leadership in Teaching: TESOL
I chose to join Operation TEACH because of the community that the program has created. I wanted to be a part of it and feel that I had people to lean on and look to when times got tough. I knew that in this program, everyone would be going through the same things as me, and I wanted that support.
I chose to participate in Operation TEACH because of the personal and professional support given while having the opportunity to explore the vocation of teaching in a Catholic school. I enjoy the solidarity and sharing my experiences as a new teacher with the other young teachers in the program. I also enjoy teaching in a Catholic school because I am able to educate the whole student – spiritually, intellectually, and physically.
