A few weeks ago I was quite pleased when the Baltimore Sun ran a commentary I wrote in response to an article entitled “More Jobs than Workers.” I wanted the public to know about the many initiatives at Towson University to fuel the pipeline of future teachers and workers in STEM fields.
The article was quite well received and was picked up by the Chicago Tribune and the newsletter for Congressional Staffers. I’ve also received emails and phone calls about the commentary from many colleagues nationwide.
On July 14, the Advanced Placement student boot camp sponsored by Towson University in partnership with the College Board began at Milford Mill Academy. I visited the program on July 15 and was quite impressed with the level of commitment and energy the students were exhibiting. They have a wonderful rapport with their master teacher, Kevin Dalsimer, and two Towson pre-service interns, Sean Selba and Michelle Tarr. On Thursday, GiGi Barnett of WJZ-TV and Liz Bowie from the Baltimore Sun visited the camp.
