Hello, I am currently on special assignment from my position as a fourth grade teacher at Hamilton School in the Schenectady City Schools to serve as a professional development specialist for the NSF Grant. I have over 25 years of teaching experience in the classroom at the elementary level. As a teacher, I have been involved in science curriculum in Schenectady. I have been a member of the District Science Curriculum Committee to improve science education in Schenectady. I have also worked as an STC trainer for both Schenectady and BOCES, as well as a turnkey trainer for the ESPET Test in Schenectady.
I am excited about working with SUNY Albany along with teachers from Bethlehem, Burnt-Hills, Watervliet and Schenectady to improve both content and assessment in science instruction.
