I was fortunate enough to work alongside my mentor, Dr. Jessica Mitchell, on a proposal and project that was accepted to be presented at the National Council for Teachers of English (NCTE). It was a remarkable experience and I am so incredibly thankful to have been involved. I was initially intimidated to present as an undergraduate, but the environment of the conference quickly diminished all doubt. It was surreal to be surrounded by thousands of people who intensely share my passions, fears, hopes, and resilient curiosity.

Our project focused on preservice teachers within a instructional technology course. We worked together to plan instruction that included a focus on the ELA majors and how they might integrate technology in innovative ways. We worked together to explore how the preservice teachers would participate in inquiry and focusing on the metacognition of so after the fact. Students were then asked to explore how technology could be used across disciplines to work towards a similar goal. The preservice teachers were assessed based on submitting their interdisciplinary team's grant proposals aimed at securing funds for a desire shared project.

Please, feel free to explore our proposal submission which goes into much more depth about the project as a whole:
