Four student teachers from Michigan State University are combining their skills in teaching with science, technology, engineering and math, while trying to inspire students at high-need urban Jackson High School, as part of the W.K Kellogg Foundation's Woodrow Wilson Michigan Teaching Fellowship. "I like the idea that the kids who need the most help are the ones getting it," said Matt Oney, who has been pursuing a doctorate in plant molecular biology. "Most people with my education end up teaching in schools in ritzy neighborhoods. But I can take my passion for science and bring it to places like Jackson so they learn and enjoy science as much as I do."
