I am delighted to be able to announce that Mrs Caroline Skerry, our inspirational Year 4 teacher and all round St Joseph’s star, has made further waves in the world of science – her specialist subject, but just one of many at which she excels. Never one to stand still, Mrs Skerry has been in the process of applying for Leading STEM Educator status, and we have just had word that she has been successful.
The wise people at STEM Learning who have overseen her application wrote that “This application clearly demonstrates the change in practice and growth in confidence that the CPD you have undertaken has upon you, your colleagues and your pupils. We are pleased to award Leading STEM Educator.”
STEM Learning is an organisation with the stated goal of “working to achieve a world-leading education for all young people in science, technology, engineering and mathematics,” a laudable goal and one that we very much buy into here at St Joseph’s.
I am looking forward to seeing Mrs Skerry continue to inspire young people throughout the forthcoming academic year and beyond: well done Mrs Skerry, we are all very proud of you.
