UTeach 20th Anniversary
UTeach celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2017, and WVUteach, a replication site at one of 45 Universities nationwide, helped celebrate!
To help mark this auspicious occasion, we helped UTeach raise awareness of the importance of high-quality secondary STEM education with a variety of celebratory activities during 2016–2017:
- WVUteach students were joined UTeach students across the nation by participating in contests to make a video about UTeach.
- We collected videos of our faculty telling us why they teach:
- Why Co-Director Jeffrey Carver teaches
- Why Master Teacher Vanessa Licwov-Channell teaches
- Why Master Teacher Nancy Spillane teachers
- Why Master Teacher Michael Tilley teaches
- On May 2, 2017, WVUteach and WVU President Gordon Gee went into a fifth grade classroom at North Elementary School to teach a STEM lesson.
- The Mayor of the City of Morgantown proclaimed May 2, 2017 WVUteach Day
- Anniversary celebrations culminated May 23-25, 2017, when WVUteach joined UTeach Nation in Austin, TX, at the 2017 Annual UTeach Conference for three days of learning and networking with teachers, universities, and funders from across the nation.
