Jayme Hubbell, a student in Trevecca’s Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) Program, was pictured in the March 10, 2014, online edition of Education Week. The accompanying article, “Districts Tackle Technology Gaps” by Amanda M. Fairchild, explains how the push for common core has helped school districts to improve the technology in their schools.

Jayme is pictured using a SMART Board© mobile cart (an interactive teaching center), as she teaches kindergarten children at Buena Vista Elementary School in Nashville. Jayme is a participant in the Aspiring Teacher Program, started my Metro-Nashville Public Schools’ (MNPS) Office of Innovation. This new program is a collaborative project of MNPS and some local colleges (Trevecca, Vanderbilt, Lipscomb, Aquinas, and Austin Peay State University). Trevecca has the most students (nine) participating. Eight Trevecca students are teaching at Buena Vista, and one is at Bailey Middle School.
