Julie Farr Field, daughter in Alex McKale’s classroom
From the moment my daughter entered Dr. McKale’s class it was like a light had turned on for her. She fell in love with Physics.
Stuart Schmill, Dean of Admissions MIT
Each academic year we ask students at MIT to share with us the name of a teacher who has been especially influential in their development. Most importantly, thank you for your time, patience, expertise, love, discipline, and all other qualities which have made such an important impact on your students.
Monserrat Flores, an 8th grade student in EnCorps Educator Tyran Richard’s science class at La Grange Middle School
Mrs. Richards is different from other teachers. She has a lot of experience that she uses to make the concepts easy to understand. She really cares whether we understand the material. I am finally liking science!
Bryan Wasserman, EnCorps Fellow
Thanks to EnCorps, I got into the classroom quicker, and am better equipped to help my students understand scientific concepts. I help my students see the relevance of science in their personal lives, and to the world at large.
