Tammy Lee, an accomplished East Carolina University double-alumni, is giving back to the university by passing on her love of Science Education and inspiring more and more young people to go into the teaching of science. As Tammy explains, " In 2010 there were only 7 students concentrating in science. Now as of spring of 2014, we have 90 students enrolled in the elementary science concentration.  Tammy spearheaded the development and implementation of 4 new courses for Elementary Majors concentrating in science. This program is vital in strengthening elementary science education, which will impact students entering STEM careers. Read the full story.



Congratulations to Katherine Collins, for becoming our featured student spotlight.  Katherine was chosen to receive the Diana Kester Award after being nominated by one of her professor's for  innovation and creativity with the use of technology in the classroom.  Having a 4.0 average helped, as well!

Katherine works full-time with students and teachers as a Digital Learning and Teaching Coach at Clyde Erwin Elementary Magnet School and Bell Fork Elementary in Onslow County.  She says that she is able to use a lot of her assignments from ECU in her job. That is probably one of the reasons that she says, " East Carolina University  offers the BEST instructional technology program for educators."  The IT faculty also enjoy having Katherine in their program agreeing that, “Kat is constantly present in her online work, a dedicated student who is not only engaged in  her classwork but energizes her classmates, as well.” Read the full story.
