ShaKayla Moran, one of Boise State’s 2021 Top Ten scholars, will graduate as a first-generation college student. She says her work in IDoTeach has honed her academic excellence and influenced the kind of science educator she hopes to become. 🐴🎓💙

"Being a first generation student at Boise State has taught me how to be resilient and persevere," said Moran. "IDoTeach has prepared me to be an educator because they provide the opportunity to get in the classroom earlier, and having more experience makes you a better teacher. The program has helped me prepare inquiry-based and innovative lessons, which I think are really important in the sciences, and I hope to bring that experience to my students."

Boise State students and faculty, dressed in blue t-shirts and lab coats, along with Emmett Middle School students and community partners, recently led activities and interactive experiments designed to engage elementary-aged kids in science, technology, engineering and math at a STEM education night in Emmett, Idaho.

Former NASA astronaut and Boise State Distinguished Educator in Residence Steve Swanson kicked off the activities with a presentation and video about his time at the International Space Station, and fielded eager questions from the crowd.

“These events show young people that STEM careers can be interesting and fun. STEM is about finding creative, technical solutions to make our world a better place," Swanson said.

More than 60 volunteers participated, including Boise State University College of Education elementary education majors and IDoTeach students, the Boise State Microgravity team and the Boise State College of Innovation + Design NASA SUITS team, the Geosciences Outreach Program, and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers from Boise State College of Engineering. Off-campus partners included Idaho Museum of Mining and Geology, Foothills Learning Center, and the 4-H Extension Youth Development program.

IDoTeach teacher candidates André Bolliou, Hanna Irving and Douglas Jackson created an activity that models the potential energy of a magnetic accelerator, and their work is featured in an article published in The Physics Teacher.

Andre, Hanna and Douglas were students in Leslie Atkins Elliott’s Spring 2018 course, and developed a lab activity that can be used in high school physics classrooms.

Meet Haley! She's an Engineering Plus major who is working on her IDoTeach certificate. She plans to use her certificate to either bring a different perspective into the engineering industry or to work within a school in order to inspire curiosity about STEM. This week we'll learn more about why Haley joined the IDoTeach program!

School districts across Idaho are experiencing teacher and personnel shortages due to pandemic-related absences. In addition to the shortages, districts are facing a lack of substitute teachers who are able to cover these personnel absences and have called on stakeholders around the state for help. Those stakeholders are facing their own kinds of crisis standards of care resource management decisions.

Boise State University College of Education is placing teacher candidates in short-staffed schools while offering those candidates high-quality field experiences and mentoring.

Teacher candidates like Boise State student Jenna Urquidez – majoring in elementary education and teaching English to speakers of other languages/English as a new language major – typically complete over 900 hours in the field during their final year in the program. A PK-12 mentor teacher and a Boise State faculty liaison supervise students like Urquidez during their clinical field placements and support their progress in the program. Uriquidez is completing her student teaching semester in teacher Sonia Galaviz’s fourth and fifth-grade combination class at Garfield Elementary School in Boise.

The college supports schools by redefining how clinical field placement meet the necessary requirements, thus freeing mentor teachers to cover teacher absences in other classrooms. Intern and student teachers are also helping fill other vacancies that schools are not able to cover through substitutes.
