Remember, you ARE definitely an asset (not an
accessory) to the learning process for students here in Northampton County!
IERN WILL understands that economic vitality and future sustainability of the community is a result of the confidence people have in their abilities to create and be the change they wish to see in the world. I know that the community’s best resource is The People & want to make sure we’re maximizing the potential in our communities. IERN WILL’s ultimate goal is to inspire life-long learning by providing access to passion-filled and self-directed learning opportunities for all learners.
We really feel the best way to do this is by having teacher centered professional development for student centered learning. What that means is using what you’re most passionate about to help students in different content areas. So, if you’re a math teacher that’s passionate about hiking, lets work together to create activities that use math to model distance traveled or determine the change in oxygen concentration further up the mountain. Maybe you want to have students come to Garysburg Volunteer Library to use the topographic globe to identify the best region of the world for you next hiking expedition, but the possibilities are endless. With your help, we will create a full “TEAMS” (STEM & Arts) curriculum that can be used for after-school activities in the home and at the local libraries.
What are your passions and what goals have you set out to accomplish through teaching and education?
