I am Jessica Marcet, a middle and high school mathematics teacher at New Lothrop Jr/Sr High School in New Lothrop, Michigan. In addition to teaching mathematics for fifteen years, I enjoy coaching New Lothrop High School's Quiz Bowl team, advising the New Lothrop Chapter of the National Honor Society, and continually searching for unique ways to engage students with mathematics. I was recently selected as a Dow Innovation Teacher Fellow and look forward to weaving mathematics and sustainability together in an effort to make the world a better place. In my free time, I enjoy being with my husband and son, travelling to various drag racing tracks, and being outdoors. I am honored to receive this grant and look forward to helping my students experience and think critically about mathematics.
NSHSS is always looking to find ways to support our network of educators, especially those who are constantly looking to support their students. To help offset the financial burden, NSHSS is awarding fifteen (15) high school educators $500 grants to help provide additional opportunities to their students and classrooms.
