St. Thomas More’s leadership in STEM comes first and foremost from its teachers. Our Engineering chairperson and STEM Coordinator was recently named the 2016 Distinguished Educator of the Year by the Education Deans of Greater Milwaukee. This prestigious award recognizes educators who have facilitated high academic performance among their students, contributed significantly closing the achievement gap, and received the respect and admiration of their colleagues in the education community.
“I learned so many things at St. Thomas More that people here at Northwestern are being exposed to for the first time.”
Both our Engineering and Biomedical Sciences chairpersons serve as Project Lead the Way “Master Teachers.” In this role, they train fellow high school teachers from across the county, ensuring that they are equipped with the skills needed to prepare their students for college-level STEM courses.
“Project Lead the Way at St. Thomas More gives students an opportunity that is almost unheard of for a high school student. Besides being enjoyable and interesting, my experience is certainly paying dividends.”
