MSUTeach celebrates first cohort of graduates

Chaise-220-160.jpgMSUTeach, a program that allows students to pursue secondary school teacher certification within a four-year biology, chemistry, earth science, mathematics or physics degree program, congratulates its first graduating students. Chaise Cremeans of Lexington and Sean-Michael Flynn of Morehead earned Bachelor of Science in Mathematics (MSUTeach Track) degrees. They received their diplomas at the 2018 Fall Commencement ceremony in December. 

Master Teacher Kendra Schroeder said, “MSUTeach Faculty and Staff are proud of and thankful for our first graduates. We are proud of their successful completion of challenging STEM degrees with the MSUTeach Track. We are thankful for their willingness to dive into a young program and complete the MSUTeach coursework, including the Apprentice Teaching semester, in six semesters. They have demonstrated persistence, flexibility and leadership in helping us build this program. We wish them well as they embark on the next step in their lives.”

Sean-Michael-220-160.jpgFlynn and Cremeans have joined the UTeach Nation as MSUTeach/UTeach alumni, which provides them with a connected network of over 4,500 UTeach alumni across the United States. UTeach alumni have opportunities to engage with the network virtually and at the annual alumni conference, as well become eligible for UTeach alumni awards.  

Following graduation, Cremeans is spending a year in Germany, working and traveling before beginning her teaching career. Flynn obtained a mathematics teaching position at Bracken Country High School. His induction mentor is MSUTeach Master Teacher Diane Johnson.  
MSUTeach, an affiliate of the UTeach program, allows STEM majors to gain a bachelor’s degree in their content area of biology, chemistry, earth science, mathematics or physics while also completing the coursework toward certification in secondary education. The program offers a flexible approach that expands career opportunities such as pursuing a STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) career, graduate school or sharing their successes with students through teaching.
