As a STEM community, it is essential that our students are exposed to professionals working in science and engineering careers. You provided an incredible presentation for our students. When evaluating the presentations, the students raved about how engaging your lesson was and how passionate you are about your career as a Nurse Practitioner. The young ladies were especially intrigued by the fact that you are able to balance a career in Science and hold a title as Mrs. Gwinnett. Although we strive to provide the best instructional experience we can for our students, we cannot replicate the world of work experiences you presented to the students. Thank you for giving your valuable time and sharing an important message with our students.
