My background as a Science Educator is broad and deep. My first job was in the US Peace Corps teaching biology in Ghana, West. Africa. My wonderful students are in the cover photo of this page. After many years teaching science in the K-12 and University Systems, I decided to step up my game and enrolled in USC’s Doctoral Degree Program for a PhD in Science Education.
My career universe expanded further but it always stayed within the gravitational pull of Science Education. Working as a Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Curriculum Specialist has included being a Program Director for multiple grants ($5 million and $6 million HSI STEM Grants from the US Department of Education) and being an Adjunct Professor in Science Education for USC’s Rossier School of Education Master of Arts in Teaching Program. Having guru status feels pretty damn good because it includes helping to prepare the next generation of secondary science teachers. One of my great pleasures has been writing dozens of grants and receiving over $600,000 in funding to support K-12 STEM programs.
Writing is my newest adventure. I plan to continue to create STEM books for children so they can nurture their love of nature including animals, astronomy…. and all other STEM disciplines A-Z.
