Abstract for the conference program

Join us as we share the success of a chemistry student’s application for a Woodrow Wilson Fellow. Concepts of methods and pedagogy from the FOCUS class seminar and high school teaching experiences led to the implementation of her lesson that helped her succeed. As a chemistry major who now has passion to teach, this student applied for the Fellow knowing that if she was not successful, she would be unable to pursue a MAT degree. After she shares some major points, the audience will participate in the lesson she created for the interview process as part of her successful pursuit of her passion to teach.
