From your President-Elect


I have been very fortunate throughout my career in meeting and learning from many wonderful science educators, many of whom were members of OSTA. I’ve been teaching 27 years, 4 years in Condon and 23 years at Gresham High School, with 1 year spent at the NSF as an Einstein Fellow. I was awarded the Presidential Award (PAEMST) in 2007 and am a National Board Certified teacher (since 2001).

OSTA has been important to my own professional development since my early career when I would drive many hours to attend a workshop or conference sponsored by OSTA or one of OSTA’s regional representatives. Since then, my role has changed as I have presented at many conferences, encouraged and supported colleagues in presenting, and worked behind the scenes to support OSTA’s efforts to support science education in Oregon. OSTA has an important role in supporting science educators to successfully adapt to our new “COVID-19” reality. I have put my name forward for consideration for the President-Elect position because I believe in the mission of OSTA and want to help lead this organization as it supports science educators and students in our changing and challenging world.
