COMMUNITY, INQUIRY, LEADERSHIP: EXPLORING EARLY CAREER OPPORTUNITIES THAT SUPPORT STEM TEACHER GROWTH AND SUSTAINABILITY

An article written by KSTF Director, Research & Evaluation Jodie Galosy, and Executive Director, Nicole Gillespie, was published in a special peer-reviewed issue of The Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas entitled, Successful Strategies for Supporting Learning and Professional Development for Secondary Educators.

“Community, Inquiry, Leadership: Exploring Early Career Opportunities That Support STEM Teacher Growth and Sustainability” discusses the results of a mixed-methods study of the experiences of early-career mathematics and science teachers selected to participate in the KSTF Teaching Fellows Program. The article provides evidence that beginning mathematics and science teachers need a combination of three mutually reinforcing learning opportunities for growth and sustainability: content-rich professional community, pedagogical inquiry and leadership from the classroom.
