What came first, the chicken or the cellophane?
Waterloo High School science teacher Lisa Parish and her students tried to answer that question last year. Because of that, she has been accepted to the first class of the National Teachers Guild fellowship winners.
Parish is one of 10 teachers from across the United States selected for her innovative teaching methodologies and creative instructional practices. She was nominated by school Superintendent Terri Bavis.
Parish was in San Francisco at the end of July for the start of the Guild Fellowship year.
Guild Fellows are “creating change for and from their classrooms.”
“Through the one-year fellowship, teachers will design an innovative solution, share it across their school or district, and be a part of a cohort of 10 exceptional educators from across the country who believe in the power of teacher ideas to transform education from the ground up,” said a Teachers Guild spokesperson in a press release.
