St. Paul's Catholic School- Middle School Science Olympiad and S.T.E.A.M.

Mentoring Needs(1)

About St. Paul's Catholic School- Middle School Science Olympiad and S.T.E.A.M.

My name is LeAnn Villegas, and I am the director, teacher, and primary STEM educator at St. Paul's. As a two time National Science Olympiad participant, last year, I trained our 40 Middle School students to compete in Idaho's State Science Olympiad. Coaching primarily alone, our three teams placed the highest in our history. I had eight medalists, and 80% of my children placed 10th or greater in their specific events. This year, we also have monthly invitationals to prepare for. Knowing that Science Olympiad is a Partner of MWM, I am hoping for 5 mentors (depending on their availability and skill set) to coach my girls in our building events. I am where I am today because my S.O. teacher mentored me. I fell in love with science, and we are still great friends. She is the Idaho S.O. President, and I was just told that she has terminal cancer. It is my goal to place first in State, in her honor. To show her that she makes a difference, and prepare another generation for STEM.
