San Jacinto College math professor earns specialist certification
Shannon Solis, a developmental math professor at San Jacinto College, recently became a certified developmental education specialist.
The certification came from the Kellogg Institute for the Training and Certification of Developmental Educators, and Solis was one of 45 community college instructors who participated in the process at Appalachian State University.
The four-week program immersed participants in professional development training. They also had to create and implement a practicum of new teaching methods at their home institutes. Solis's practicum, An Intervention Tutorial Program for Developmental Math Students, taught students to use MyMathLab and other resources.
"I have always prided myself on staying abreast of the latest education skills in my field," Solis said in a press release. "Every summer I try to attend professional development programs to improve my classroom teaching experiences. It was awesome to meet others in my field and learn from them."
San Jacinto College is located at 8060 Spencer Highway, Pasadena.
