How will you continue to integrate an aspect of GK-12 and your partnership with graduate students into your teaching, philosophy, etc.?
My GK-12 fellow has been great in encouraging and motivating my students to consider various scientific/engineering colleges programs. The network with scientists has allowed exposure to the possibilities for my students. I intend to continue to facilitate student awareness.

How has the GK-12 experience changed you, and how has your participation changes the GK-12 project?
I am more aware of what students need, e.g., computer skills and knowledge of new sensor applications, to succeed in college in the twenty-first century. Also, I am more cognizant of the options available for students to pursue scientific careers. I have expanded the GK-12 program by connecting my GK-12 fellow to the science department at Bucksport Middle School.
