Meet Our Fellows

Featured Fellow


Name: Cristobal Carambo 
School: Philadelphia High School for Girls 
2018 Seminar Enrollment: Philosophy, Science & Society


My favorite seminar to date was the literature seminar with Dr. Beavers.  I found it most interesting to study several genres of African American literature that are often overlooked. I found the seminar especially relevant to my science classroom as it provided a way to incorporate themes from contemporary science fiction (both movies and short stories) into my chemistry curriculum.  I have discovered that the teacher’s knowledge base needs to be constantly refreshed with discourses from a variety of fields.  In this respect the interactions with seminar leaders and fellows has tremendously expanded my intellect and sense of scholarship. I can’t single out any specific concept that I’ve learned however the seminars have made me aware of a host of long-held assumptions that I am constantly critiquing and correcting. This is perhaps the most valuable aspect of the TIP seminars as they’ve given me the tools to continue challenging my intellect.
