When it comes to exploring, sign up Eileen Bercu! She has tracked down the distinction of Leander ISD Career and Technical Education (CTE) Student of the Week!

Eileen goes to Running Brushy Middle School where she’s taking the Project Lead The Way (PTLW) Gateway course Medical Detectives. The curriculum uses real-world challenges to learn and apply skills. Although she’s investigating medical diseases, Eileen has discovered a host of new interests, like Computer Science, band, and photography. She’s even teaching herself the programming language Python

“A leader in the classroom and out, Eileen shows kindness and helpfulness. Her eagerness to learn lends itself to her intelligence and open mind,” Running Brushy MS PTLW Gateway teacher Tashia Mossman said.

Case closed! Way to go, LISD CTE Student of the Week Eileen Bercu!
