Associate Professor of Psychology
Wheaton College

I have been actively involved in science education since I became a Project Kaleidoscope Faculty for the 21st Century member in the early 1990's. I am an active member of the Council on Undergraduate Research, and teach an interdisciplinary science course for pre-service teachers developed collaboratively with education faculty, biology faculty, and in-service teachers with funds from one of the very last Eisenhower grants. I have participated in a number of STEM education reform/promotion efforts, and currently serve on the Advisory Board for the Southcoast Regional STEM Education Network in the state of Massachusetts.
