What AEOP program(s) did you participate in?
What are you doing now?
I am a Engineering and Technology education teacher.
Why are you excited to be on the AEOP Alumni Leadership Council?
The reason that I am so very excited to be on the AEOP Alumni Leadership Council is because I have seen first hand how much my students have grown as researchers, writers and learners from working on the eCYBERMISSION competition and I want to “give back” to the AEOP program in any way that I can.
What is the most beneficial/inspiring part of the mentor relationship?
The most important part of the mentor relationship is making connections with students in a non-evaluative setting. As a mentor, I work closely with students as they work on a project that they are passionate about because they want to and not because they have to. As a result, I really get to know the students on a more personal basis.
