  2. #williamandmary can feel huge at first, but tonight it felt very small. Emily Lopynski, 2016, hosted a holiday party in DC and it was crazy how many connections all her friends had to each other. InterVaristy, Branch Out, and Sharpe Scholars were just some of the ways we all were interconnected. #onetribeonefamily #smallschool -HM @hannahem27

  3. Lesson from today's site visit with Mr. Weingarten: Teachers need to be resilient, patient, and consistent. #williamandmary #teacher #wmalum

  4. Still reeling from a whirlwind day. We visited KIPP Webb Campus (top), Langley HS (left), and had dinner with Dream Project students (right) sharing their stories. As a student from southern VA, I was shocked and shaken to see such stark segregation and the effects of white flight in the DC area. Today has worn me down emotionally, but I am ready to fight for all students to get the quality education that is currently only afforded to wealthy students in wealthy schools. #williamandmary #notstoppinghere #educationequity -HM @hannahem27

  7. So maybe this is normal for NOVA people, but as a small town bio major I geeked out... Today I found out the one and only #nsf building is a ten minute walk from where I'm staying!!! This is admittedly super nerdy, but I felt almost star-struck as I stared at a foundation that has funded and supported so much amazing research and learning opportunities for this country. I've received NSF funding for two internships and they're *hopefully* helping with grad school too, so I felt I had to pay my respects. If you're interested in teaching STEM and receiving aforementioned funding check out the Noyce program at http://www.wm.edu/as/sciencemathed/noyce/ 馃榿
