We are pleased to announce the Maureen McGuire Myers Fellows for 2023.

Josh Mulready, Middle School Makers Educator

Broadening programming and coding opportunities in the Arts and Innovation Center

Josh will attend Carnegie Mellon Robotics Academy to learn how to teach programming, electronics, and STEM concepts using the Arduino Uno powered Parallax Shield-bot. An educational robotics platform, the Shield-bot allows educators to provide students with a deeper understanding of the components, circuits, and signals that make technology work. Josh looks forward to providing more programming and coding opportunities to his students and partnering with science teachers to bring coding to life in Carroll classrooms.

Sierra Thibodeau, Upper School Math Educator

Strengthening her role as an advisor and educator

Sierra will participate in a one-week educator retreat at the Stanley H. King Institute for Independent Secondary Schools. Led by experienced mental health and counseling professionals, daily workshops teach educators how to listen deeply to students in ways that promote learning and strengthen relationships. Sierra looks forward to broadening her skills as an Upper School advisor and teacher so she can more fully support students academically, socially, and emotionally.

 

Nicole Jones, Middle School English Language Arts Educator

Enhancing writing and thinking skills for Middle School students

Nicole will partake in two training sessions with The Writing RevolutionAdvanced Thinking through Writing and an implementation course that builds off of it. The courses teach ways to help students improve their writing skills, including note-taking, summarization, and revision strategies. Nicole is eager to learn additional approaches that will equip her students with the tools to become stronger writers—and thinkers.

 

About the Maureen McGuire Myers Endowment Fund for Professional Development

The Maureen McGuire Myers Endowment Fund for Faculty Professional Development supports professional development activities of Carroll School faculty. The fund was created by Stewart Myers – parent of Alex Myers ’91 – in recognition of the transformative impact of Carroll School educators. Stewart named the fund and the fellows after his late wife, Maureen McGuire Myers. An active volunteer at Carroll, Maureen served as President of the PA while Alex was a student and then as a Trustee for 15 years.
