Jamie Sullivan, RN, BSNMrs. Jamie Sullivan, Health Science Instructor at Grand River Technical School, was recently selected to attend a two-and-one-half-day intensive hands-on institute for a select group of innovative health science teachers. This training took place on November 14-16th in Chicago, IL.

The Master Teacher Institute focused on: classroom strategies for student engagement, strength identification, technology, teaching study skills, and the data driven classroom. Master teachers from the National Consortium for Health Science Education member states were selected after  completing an application process. This process included a recommendation from the health science state lead from Dept. of Elementary and Secondary Education, and their school administrator.

Up to four nominations were allowed to be submitted from each state. From the  state of Missouri, three (3) participants were selected. Other participants from Missouri included Alverta Mooney-Smith, St. Louis, and Barbara Houk, Clinton.

From the 26 states participating in the consortium, 51 master teachers had been selected. Keeping the groups small helped assure interaction and networking. With this Institute being a success, they will continue to offer opportunities for Master Teachers to train together annually.

Mrs. Sullivan is a second year Health Science instructor at GRTS, currently in her 7th year of teaching this subject. She and her family live in Carrollton. She is pictured at top participating in the dissection process.
