  1. Great presentation. I enjoyed learning more about your summer internship. I understand even more about why you are such a great STEM Zone ZI. Thank you.

  2. This experience has been life altering for you as well as your students. I am inspired by the fact that you approached your project with such enthusiastic and informed adaptability. Your students are fortunate to have a teacher who is not only empathetic, but who simultaneously learns. I am proud to have worked with you.

  3. Katie Sofia,
    Thank you for your presentation. I can see that you are passionate about teaching, which is wonderful. You worked with a variety of age groups this summer and I’m curious if you formed a preference for which age group you’d like to work with?

  4. Hi Katia,

    These videos exhibit all that I have come to expect of you: a compelling presentation of a challenging project that you tackled with your full heart and mind and which made a difference in people’s lives. Congrats!

    It seems like adapting the Mentessori philosophy to a virtual platform must have been a challenge. Were you able to find ways to mimic the self-directed, hands-on approach in your online teaching?
