"I am trained as a biologist and have been a HS educator for 14 years. I think it is vital in today's society that we, as educators, focus on STEM ideology to keep our students competitive in the job market."

STEM Fellows Project:

I am working with a fellow teacher to host a STEM day at our school. We will be inviting students of all ages from our parish schools.
