Teachers at STEM Summer School

Anna Kimes and Jessica Lynn Rosa, who teach Advanced Placement English literature and composition at Rogers High School, are attending a special kind of summer school to prepare to teach Advanced Placement courses. The teacher training session is part of the Massachusetts Insight Education’s (MIE) AP STEM and English initiative, a program to expand college level coursework opportunities for high school students. More than 500 teachers from Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Louisiana will attend a two-week Advanced Placement Summer Institute at Bridgewater State University, where they will focus on pre-AP and AP coursework in their fields. Advanced Placement courses offer college classes to high school students to prepare them for college success, while also providing the opportunity to earn college credits before graduating high school.
