When Kimberly Fleming got in touch with me last summer to discuss a grant, I knew it was important. She said that her colleagues, Drs. Kari Debbink and Eva Garin at Bowie State University are applying for the National Science Foundation’s Noyce Program and are looking for an evaluator with experience in Noyce grants.
A few days and several emails later, we agreed to collaborate on the grant proposal.
Glad to announce that their hard work has paid off and the partnership has come to fruition.
Over the next 5 years, MNA will be actively engaged in formatively and summatively evaluating the Preparing and Retaining Diverse, High-Quality Secondary School STEM Teachers in Maryland High-Need Schools Noyce grant in partnership with Prince George’s County Public Schools
(MD) and Walter Reed Army Institute of Research where pre-service teachers will complete summer internships teaching STEM subjects.
This will be MNA’s 4th Noyce grant evaluation since 2009:
1) Math for America, DC (2009-15)
2) TEAMS with Appalachian State University, NC (2017-21)
3) Be Brave, Teach STEM with Alcorn State University, MS (2019-24).
