MISSION STATEMENT & SCHOLAR COMMITMENT
A COMMUNITY OF PRE-SERVICE STEM
TEACHERS FROM CALIFORNIA’S
CENTRAL VALLEY
WE ARE…
COMMITTED
PASSIONATE
COMMUNITY BUILDING
COMMITTED
PASSIONATE
COMMUNITY BUILDING
Noyce Scholars will benefit from a professional learning community of
university professors, K-12 teachers, mathematicians, scientists,
professional educators and mentors who can provide training, support and
boost confidence both academically and professionally. They will
collaborate with other pre-service teachers who aspire to become the most
highly qualified STEM educators in California.
Scholar commitment to teaching will be amplified and motivated through
enhanced professional development. Meetings and workshops will allow
them to encourage each other in their teaching aspirations and share ideas
and concerns.
Scholars will blossom with the common desire to bring to life
the wonder of science & math to future students in a safe
and exciting learning environment where a love for knowledge
and respect for others will be role-modeled.
