Urban Mathematics and Science Teacher Collaborative - (Noyce)
New Fellowship Program for Math and Science Teachers Grades 1-12
Meet the Noyce Fellows, 2012/2013
The Cohort Two Noyce Fellows are currently in their second year of teaching:
in the greater Boston area, in central Massachusetts, and in Virginia.
Before completing her MAT degree at
Tufts, Emma graduated from Smith College
with a BA in Engineering Science and
pursued a degree in Imaginative
Education at Simon Fraser University.
While an MAT student at Tufts, she
interned at Somerville High School, and
she is now in her second year at Quaboag
Regional Middle/High School in Warren,
Massachusetts, where she teaches 8th
grade engineering and physics.
'While certainly academic, physics can
also be intensely practical, and real
understanding of it can alter the way
that one interacts with objects. It can
and should be relevant for students who
do not think of themselves as "brainy."'
Helen received her bachelor and
masters engineering degrees from MIT
before earning her MAT at Tufts. During
her time at Tufts, she interned at
TechBoston Academy in the Boston
neighborhood of Dorchester, where she is
now in her second year of teaching
"I'm excited to engage with my students
to explore the world of science with
them. Teaching is my far the most
challenging work that I have done, but
it is also definitely the most
Micaela received her Bachelor's degree
from Spelman College in Sociology and

Codman Academy Charter School in the
Boston neighborhood of Dorchester.
"My mom always told me, 'If you follow your passion
[for teaching math], work will never feel like work'
...She was right."
Before pursuing her MAT at Tufts, Marni
earned her bachelor's degree in physics
from Williams College. While at Tufts,

"I am excited to foster a love of
science in people's minds, and I feel
lucky that I have the support of
communities like Tufts and Codman
Academy to help me get started."
A double Jumbo, Noah received
his BA in mathematics before pursuing
his MAT. He interned at Codman Academy
Charter School in Boston's Dorchester
neighborhood and is currently in his
second year of teaching math there.
"I believe all students deserve an
education that makes available to them
the opportunity to pursue their
passions. I hope to be part of a school
and a system that make that dream a
Before pursuing her MAT at
Tufts, Arielle received her bachelor's
degree in Chemical Engineering with a
supplemental major in Applied
Mathematics from New Mexico State
University. She also spent a year in
Smith College's Post-Baccalaureate
program studying Mathematics. While at
Tufts, she interned at Fenway High
School in Boston and is currently
teaching math at Excel High School in
South Boston, Massachusetts.
"I always wanted to be a teacher and over the years, many have
persuaded me to be something else because I was talented in math and
science. I decided that teaching is where I need to be. I am the
happiest here. What better way to use my skills than helping others
climb the educational ladder to better our future?"
A double Jumbo, Laura graduated
from Tufts University with a degree in
mechanical engineering before pursuing
her MAT. She interned at Mission Hill
K-8 School in Boston and currently
teaches math in Richmond, Virginia.
"I think that mathematics education is
becoming more and more critical in the
world for the success of our students,
and I want to be there to help them
achieve that success."
Kendal received her bachelor's degree in
mathematics at Union College. While
pursuing her MAT at Tufts, she interned
in a middle school math classroom at the
Mission Hill School in Boston.
Currently, she teaches 8th grade math at
Cambridge Street Upper School in
"I'm here for the kids. I've always
loved math and want to erase those scary
preconceptions about it, but at the end
of the day it's the relationships I form
with the students that I'm most excited
