AP Access for All
AP Teacher Training
The AP Access for All initiative quickly got underway by offering free College Board training to high school teachers in their licensure area. The Niswonger Foundation was able to coordinate with the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga to offer AP Summer Institute training for 23 courses. We received 246 requests from teachers across the state and extended invitations to 146 teachers in 29 districts. We were pleased with the tremendous response and will coordinate with UTC during the summer of 2022 to offer more seats and more courses. If a teacher did not receive training this summer they will be on a priority list for 2022.
Teacher Spotlight: Mrs. Britni Sauceman
Mrs. Sauceman's passion for online learning shines through in the courses she has thoughtfully designed and her interactions with students. We are so thankful to have her on our team!
Mrs. Sauceman teaches our ACT Prep class, a self-paced online course she designed to help students do their very best on the ACT. Students learn important test-taking strategies, discuss how to cope with test anxiety, and complete practice questions for each subject area.
Our English III course was recently redesigned by Mrs. Sauceman also. This junior-level course focuses on developing close reading skills with a variety of literary texts and genres. Students explore the themes of success, power, storytelling, and truth. Students improve their grammar, writing, and research skills while creating narrative, argument, and informational writing pieces.
Mrs. Sauceman is the Library Media Specialist at Tennessee High School in Bristol, TN where she lives with her husband and son.
