• GS-LSAMP Student Spotlight
    Emmanuel Barchue

    When I first started Rutgers - Newark, I had no idea that I would be pursuing a career in STEM education. As a matter of fact, it wasn’t until I was honored with a math tutoring position with GS - LSAMP at East Side High School that I made a commitment to pursue a career in teaching mathematics. I believe that the meaning of life is to find your gift and the purpose is to give it away. LSAMP helped me find my gift and now I believe it is my purpose to help others find their gifts through STEM education. I want to empower students through mathematics. I used to mentor for Big Brothers Big Sisters at University Heights Charter School and I also volunteered with NJ PIRG. I now work with Rutgers Future Scholar as a math tutor for middle and high school students and I also tutor some of my friends here at Rutgers - Newark. I am a part of the Urban Teachers Education Program and a part of the LSAMP Student Club. All of these opportunities were made possible for me through my participation in LSAMP. I plan on pursuing my Masters in Special Education and Mathematics, and I am very hopeful towards my future as an Urban educator. I graduate with the class of 2019.

Connect With GS-LSAMP

The mission of the Garden State LSAMP program is to increase the retention, graduation and success of students from minority groups that are traditionally underrepresented in STEM. The Phase II project focuses on 1) assisting community college students to successfully transfer to four-year programs, 2) preparing and assisting students to matriculate into graduate programs and 3) increasing student opportunities in international experiences.
