Student volunteers

Missouri S&T teacher education students volunteer to support a rural community’s Friday Backpack Program.

An article titled “Preparing Rural Missouri Teachers with STEM-Focused Education,” by Dr. Beth Kania-Gosche, chair and professor of teacher education and certification, is featured on the Rural Schools Collaborative’s website.

The article emphasizes how S&T’s STEM focus is embedded in its teacher education program through training offered by Project Lead The Way, outreach programs and experiential learning opportunities.

Currently, 40 S&T graduates from the past 10 years are teaching in Missouri public schools, most of them in the rural areas surrounding Rolla.

Today 100 S&T students are pursuing educator certification in elementary or a secondary content area such as math, preparing them to pass on their love of STEM subjects to their students.
