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
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.
