The mission of the Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program at St. Edward's University is to recruit, prepare, and support 18 math and science teachers as they develop professional agency to motivate their students to develop both STEM and stewardship skills.  Partners include the University of Texas at Austin, Del Valle Independent School District, Breakthrough Collaborative and co.Lab.  A unique feature of this project is the inclusion of a micro-credential for Noyce scholars with a Makers Engaged in Social Action (MESA) focus and professional digital portfolio as an artifact for public dissemination.

Becoming a Noyce Scholar has changed my life. I've always thought about teaching, and the opportunities the Noyce Scholarship program has given me are amazing. I've presented at national education conferences, been provided with an experienced mentor teacher to help me in the classroom, and have made friends for life with fellow scholars.

Kelly Salinas, Biology '22

Hi! I'm Kelly Salinas, a senior biology major at St. Edward's. I'm super passionate about spirituality, life science, and leadership! Originally from Katy, Texas, I had the privilege of attending schools with robust science resources and incredible teachers. As I entered college, however, I realized the need for not only an understanding of science, but an understanding of belonging. My goal as a future STEM educator is to make all students understand and believe that they are scientists and can pursue a career rooted in uncovering the mysteries of the planet!

Katalina Rubio - Mathematics '22

I am a young Latina woman who aspires to become a mathematics teacher. I moved around a lot growing up, so I am from nowhere and everywhere at the same time. I love that math is abstract but can also be applied to the world around us. Math can be scary to many people which is why I want to teach it! I had a math teacher in high school named Mrs. Flores who went above and beyond to help us feel comfortable with each concept we learned. That’s where my inspiration started. I love being able to share my love of math with others and can’t wait to make a career out of it! Besides math, I love going to the gym, reading, and spending time with my friends and the people I love.
