Meet Sarah Rodriguez – Jean and Mark Schroepfer STEM Scholarship Winner

Sarah Rodriguez is the Fall 2016 recipient of the Jean and Mark Schroepfer scholarship.  Sarah teaches at Sonnesyn Elementary in the Robbinsdale School District.  Here is an excesarah rodriguez1rpt from her application letter.

“Perhaps the greatest reason I have become consumed with STEM as a teacher is the impact I have seen in my students. When under-performing students who have learning disabilities or are learning English have access to engineering, they shine. I’ve seen students who, in their standardized test scores perform at the 1 percentile, who at 10 years old may already feel beaten by most school subjects, beam from ear to ear as they complete a STEM challenge.  They are empowered.”
