Grantham Receives Salmon Apprenticeship

Education junior Madison Grantham has received the Martha Hackley Salmon Teacher Scholar Apprenticeship, a paid award for a deserving junior or senior education major that enhances their learning experience outside of the classroom.

Grantham is working with Special Education professor Dr. Michael Faggella-Luby, helping collect and analyze research articles that relate to a new book he is writing about how teachers can learn to self-assess their own high impact instructional practices. She will complete the apprenticeship when she graduates in spring 2018.

Grantham is an Early Childhood Education major from Decatur, Texas and is a member of the College of Education D.R.I.V.E. (Developing Responsible, Influential and Visionary Educators) Leadership Program. The program, led by Dr. Faggella-Luby, helps develop outstanding teacher education majors into leaders through service projects and meetings with guest speakers. Grantham originally attended TCU with the goal to become a dentist. She changed her mind after taking the Critical Investigations: Teaching and Learning course, an introduction to teaching in public schools taught by Dr. Curby Alexander.

“The reward that comes with teaching and just being in the classroom every day … it just was so appealing to me,” Grantham said. “I love it.”

Dr. Martha Salmon established the apprenticeship in the College of Education in the fall of 2012. This gift was modeled after an apprenticeship set up previously by the Salmon family in the English Department—the Christine Salmon Gauthier Student Apprenticeship—in loving memory of their daughter who received her English degree from TCU in 1994. Dr. Salmon, ’66, serves on the College of Education Board of Visitors and is a loyal TCU fan. She is a respected education professional and serves in leadership positions on community boards and organizations related to education.

Recent graduate Camila Padilla from Bogota, Colombia previously received the award.
