Biology professor selected for interview panel
Jacqueline McLaughlin, Ph.D., associate professor of biology at Penn State Lehigh Valley, has been chosen to help select the 2011 Cohorts of Science and Mathematics Teaching Fellows for the Knowles Science Teaching Foundation (KSTF). McLaughlin joined other leaders in science and mathematics education to interview candidates from March 4-6 in Philadelphia.
KSTF is a foundation whose goal is to identify and support exceptional beginning science and mathematics teachers as they grow in their profession. The fellowship, once awarded, is renewable over five years and typically begins during the final year of a teacher certification program. Finalists for the teaching fellowships must have a degree in mathematics, science, or a related field and are usually no more than five years out of a degree program. The KSTF staff conducts the initial application review and phone interviews with semi-finalists, and selects a pool of approximately 24 finalists each for the biology, mathematics, and physical science fellowships to attend the final selection interview weekend.
