UMBC is committed to assessment and student outcome measurement. The Sherman Teacher Scholars program embraces these efforts and aligns all activities to our identified goals:
Sherman Teacher Scholars will:
- cultivate mindsets and practices to develop as a culturally responsive educator.
- establish authentic and intentional relationships with students.
- develop a vision for a learning environment grounded in high academic and character expectations, classroom systems, and management strategies.
- engage in productive relationships with families and the school community.
- demonstrate competence and confidence in applying for a teaching position in an urban and/or high-needs school with a focus in Baltimore.
All program components align to these five SLOs, include the FYE course, applied learning experiences, teacher candidate seminars, and scholar-led seminars.
