  STEM teacher shares lasting
impressions from trip to India

In August 2017, Sallie Senseney, a science teacher from Yancey County, and a group of 10 North Carolina education leaders traveled to India to learn about the country’s education system, economic development, and STEM education thanks to the Burroughs Wellcome Fund (BWF) in partnership Go Global NC. Senseney is a recent winner of the BWF Career Awards for Science and Mathematics Teachers, or CASMT, providing $175,000 over five-years for things like equipment and supplies, professional development, and more. EdNC sat down with Senseney to see what lasting impressions the trip to India made on her teaching style, classroom, and more. Read this insightful conversation here. Please enjoy your e-Update.
