HERMON SCIENCE TEACHER TRENKMANN RECOGNIZED AT UMAINE RISE CENTER
We are delighted to let you know that Betsy Trenkmann has been selected to receive the Newcomer’s Award presented by the Maine STEM Partnership at the Maine Center for Research in STEM Education (RiSE Center).
Betsy’s colleagues identify her as a thoughtful and reflective practitioner who is constantly seeking ways to improve her own teaching practice in order to provide quality instruction to her students. During her first few years in the classroom, she connected with education research faculty to improve her instruction in physics, has spent time learning about research-based formative assessment and equitable grading practices and how to implement them in her classroom, and was a mentor for a student-teacher.
As a National Science Foundation Teaching Fellow, Betsy has been an active member of the community made up of other fellows and veteran teachers. Community members see her as a collaborative educator with a creative and dedicated work ethic. She gives back to her community by taking on leadership roles including offering to co-facilitate a virtual professional learning series on the topic of productive talk for K-12 STEM educators. She is also quick to share what is working well in her own classroom and willing to provide resources
she has developed to her colleagues so that they can use them in their classrooms.
The Maine STEM Partnership is excited to recognize Betsy for all that she has accomplished in her first few years of teaching. She is a valued community member and a dedicated educator whose thoughtful practice impacts not only the learning experiences in her own classroom but those of her colleagues as well. We hope you will join us in recognizing and thanking Betsy for her work in education. We feel very lucky to have her as such a valuable member of the Maine STEM Partnership community, where she contributes so much to Maine teachers and students and the improvement of STEM education in our state.
