SCHS Teacher Jennifer Spivey Awarded Fellowship

 

Jennifer Spivey spent many childhood summers at Southeastern Community College as a science camper; this summer she returned as a science educator. For five years during grade school, she attended enrichment camps led by Instructor Becky Westbrooks. Spivey, now a science teacher at South Columbus High School, is spending another summer at the College, this time as part of the prestigious Kenan Fellows Program.

The program, an initiative of the Kenan Institute for Engineering, Technology & Science at N.C. State University, sends teachers into contemporary “learning labs” in industry or higher education where they are paired with a mentor to explore new ways of preparing students for college and careers. The teachers remain active in their classrooms while completing the year-long Fellowship.

The Kenan Fellows Program has awarded 49 Fellowships to North Carolina public school teachers in every region of the state. More than 230 teachers applied to the program.

Spivey is working with Westbrooks and Teresa Lengner at SCC to develop classroom curriculum focusing on agricultural biotechnology research and its real-world applications.

“It’s so nice to work with a fellow science educator on common interests like micropropagation, native plants and agricultural plants,” said Westbrooks. “In addition to the hands-on lab activities, we’ve been providing Jennifer with important information about the business aspects of agricultural biotechnology. After all, it’s important that her students and those across the state understand the job opportunities that are available in this field.”

Spivey was eager to apply for placement at Southeastern because of the opportunity to learn again from Westbrooks and because her school is becoming increasingly focused on STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and math), with a focus on agricultural biotechnology.

Comes to SCHS

High fidelity Human Patient Simulators are used in colleges, universities, and hospital settings as educational tools to train students and employees.  The benefit for this type of training allows training scenarios that do not cause harm to patients.  The students were able to utilize various skills they had learned during their Nursing Assistant training.  They were able to perform vital signs, engage in CPR, and utilize communication skills to interact with each other, as well as, the manikin.  This was an excellent opportunity to utilize S.T.E.M protocols. 

The Mobile Simulation Lab is part of the Coastal Carolinas Health Alliance in Wrightsville Beach, NC.  The Simulation Lab Coordinator, and CCHA, provided a wonderful experience for the Allied Health II, Health Science I, and the Honors Anatomy classes at South Columbus High School.
