About Ms. Whitney Thurrott / all GPA Science Teachers

2008 Graduate from Worcester Polytechnic University with a B.S. in Molecular Biology and minors in Chemistry and German Language. While at WPI, I took part in a teacher preparation and certification program in addition to my major course load. After graduation I trasnfered my teaching certification to CT by passing the PRAXIS and began teaching at Bulkeley High School in Hartford where I remained for 4 years. At Bulkeley, I was part of the extended year program for at-risk students called the EXCEL Team. We prided ourselves in our interdisciplinary collaboration and focus on students. Our summer session consisted of enriching field trips and co-taught skills classes. In 2012, I began teaching at Great Path Academy at Manchester Community College, a Middle College Magnet High School. We have an amazing program at GPA with fantastic facilities and a dedicated team of skilled educators. Our goal is to prepare students for college and to encourage them to enroll in college courses at our partner community college as part of their HS experience.
