Nottoway High School Teacher Recognized

Katherine Bowen from Nottoway High School shared insights into student-centered, inquiry-based science teaching in a presentation at the annual Virginia Association of Science Teachers (VAST) Professional Development Institute in late November.  The presentation was part of the Virginia Initiative for Science Teaching and Achievement (VISTA), a groundbreaking new program that promotes problem-based science learning. 

Funded by a $34m grant from the U.S. Department of Education, VISTA provides free professional development intended to shift science instruction from the traditional teacher-led classroom to active instruction that is more aligned with real-world, professional science practices.  

Bowen is part of a teacher cohort selected to participate in VISTA’s program for early career secondary science teachers in the fall of 2012. They are now well into the last phase of the two-year program.

At the conference, teachers engaged conference attendees in an inquiry-based learning activity, sharing their lesson plans and showing samples of student work.  

“Presenting these unique lesson plans and sharing student work before colleagues is an invaluable aspect of VISTA,” said session facilitator Molli Logerwell, VISTA Director of Science Education at George Mason University.  “We’re creating a community of practice and support for these new teachers. Teachers are excited to come together and share the lessons they’ve created according to the VISTA method – interactive lessons that get students engaged and actively learning science in the classroom.”

Participants in the VISTA secondary teacher program (STP) receive two graduate-level courses designed specifically for early career science teachers, resulting in six graduate credits; $1,000 stipend per year for two years; up to $1,000 in classroom resources; a master science teacher/coach who will co-teach and co-plan for a total of 15 days over the two years; and all expenses paid to attend the VAST.

Traffic Pattern

Nottoway High School may not be among the largest of secondary schools or located in a high traffic area, but traffic becomes hectic near opening time in the morning and during dismissal in the afternoon.

Drivers are reminded to be aware of and obey the yield sign at the end of the school road that runs from the front of Nottoway Intermediate School to NHS. (The sign is at the junction where drivers can turn onto the highway to the left or go around to the back of the complex by going right.)

Pedestrians are reminded that they should cross school roads only within the marked crosswalks. We want everyone to be safe during our rush hours by avoiding any encounters of the dangerous kind.

Virtual Virginia

.....offers a wide range of courses, including various foreign languages. 

Check out the site for a full list of offerings and if interested, please speak with a guidance counselor.

Nottoway High School has added community service to the educational experience. Students will be involved with helping others through projects developed in each homeroom.

Mr. Lafayette Dickens, executive director of Downtown Blackstone, Inc., has provided many suggestions of area needs that can be addressed by students, and additional community leaders are welcome to come forward with other such suggestions. Students are also free to come up with ideas as to how their homeroom groups can be of assistance to our local communities. Hopefully, these experiences will lead students to keep volunteerism as a part of their lives.
