Future educator ready to teach math and life skills
July 3, 2011
Danielle Mendel graduated with a double degree in mathematics education and
history education. She is thankful for her scholarship and is excited to teach.
Danielle Mendel can’t get enough of classrooms. Fresh from earning a double degree in mathematics education and history education, Mendel is excited to be a teacher and “give students the tools they need to succeed.” And judging from her BYU experience, both objectives are well within her reach.
As a student she cofounded the BYU Mathematics Education Association, which connects math education majors to each other and to available campus resources. She also served as a research assistant for associate professor Dan Siebert in the College of Physical and Mathematical Sciences.
Mendel received a donor-funded scholarship, with which she was able to focus on her studies. “It allowed me to make the most of my BYU education,” she says. “I was blessed through the generosity of others, and I am inexpressibly grateful.”
The nursing program at Brigham Young University succeeds in part due to donations from people like you. In addition to the donor-funded scholarships available in the nursing program, nurses are also greatly benefited by the mentored learning opportunities that are also provided by donors.
Thanks to a donor-funded scholarship available for nontraditional students, Stephanie Johnson found the answer to her tuition question. I am so grateful for those who allowed me to pursue my talents. With my degree I can make a significant difference.
