Molly Sergent is a 2020 graduate of Central Michigan University studying integrated science and mathematics for secondary education. She was born and raised in Northern Lenawee County graduating from Clinton High School in 2015 and is on track to graduate from CMU in spring of 2020. In her three years as a STEM Education Scholar, Molly progressively took on various leadership roles serving as the treasurer and social chair for the Scholars’ e-board, and joining the summer staff in 2018 to prepare and assist with summer STEM camps.
When asked why she chose to go into education, Molly expresses her personal love of school and learning along with her desire to work kids and help people made teaching a natural fit. Molly looks forward to integrating STEM concepts in her future classroom to offer students opportunities to explore and discover, think differently, use tools, and develop skills that a sans-STEM approach to education may not provide.
In addition to being a STEM Education Scholar, Molly was a bible study leader for CMU’s South Campus through Cru, a Christian registered student organization. A self-proclaimed book nerd, Molly recognizes that she is going to be that wacky, mega-geek science teacher into hands-on, interactive activities, labs, and projects with her students.
