Corrine Bean, a senior at Springfield College, shares her experiences about being a new face in the field of Science education. She will be graduating in the spring with a double major in Secondary Education and Biology, with a minor in Chemistry. She has recently completed her teaching Practicum as a Biology and Anatomy & Physiology teacher at Chicopee High School, The Springfield Renaissance School teaching 8th grade Physical Science, and as a 7th grade Life Science teacher in Agawam. Corrine was nice enough to sit down with me and share why she chose to teach the sciences, her challenges with becoming a S.T.E.M. educator, and some changes she would like to see in the education system today. Corrine plans to go on to teach the sciences in Middle School and High School.
