I have been in my current position for five years. I team teach a summer general methods course for all of our MAT students, teach an assessment seminar for STEM students, teach a STEM theories course where students develop and make presentations that infuse disciplinary historical and philosophical content into their lessons, teach a school reform seminar for a mix of MAT students, and advise students in completing MAT theses and projects. Since we are a small graduate school of education, I also have substantial administrative responsibilities in regards to admissions, program administration, student advising, and committee work. Prior to coming to UGC, I was a district science supervisor for a large suburban school district for 14 years, a state science supervisor for the New York State Education Department for 7 years, a teacher and administrator for an urban independent school for 9 years, and a science teacher for a smaller suburban school district for 6 years. I am certified by NYS as a school administrator and teacher of biology, chemistry, and earth science. I have been president of the State's science teacher and science supervisor professional associations. My primary interests are science teacher education, science curriculum development, and theories of science learning. My degrees in science education are from Cornell, Union College, and the University at Albany.
