Fitz Crame…2017 Golden Apple Nominee

We are happy to share some very exciting news! Fitz Crame from Cohort 2 recently attended the 2017 Golden Apple Awards Ceremony where he was recognized as a finalist for Chicago’s Golden Apple Award in Teaching Excellence. Over six hundred Illinois educators were nominated! Crame was one of thirty three finalists.  Golden Apple will soon be choosing ten honorees.

“I wanted to share this news with you because the award comes to me in part because of what I learned through my experience with MSUrbanSTEM.  Last year’s experience was truly transformative for me as an educator.  It helped to confirm my beliefs, recalculate my vision and reignite my inspiration.  As a fellow of cohort two, I was challenged to reaffirm my values.  I believe in transformative nature of education, the immeasurable value of shifting perspective and the infinite power of ‘I can’. Thanks for helping me hone that vision.”  -Fitz Crame, #MSUrbanSTEM Cohort 2
