Research with people with STEM degrees/careers and teach elementary

Sat Aug 03, 2013 11:21 PM

I am conducting a pilot study and am looking for people with STEM degrees, or who formerly had a STEM career and then decided to teach, especially elementary.

If you are interested in learning more, please contact me at the address below.

Thank you.

Hi, Helen -- I came across your post while reading about something else. It's been a few centuries, but just in case: I got a Ph.D. in organic chemistry, worked briefly in industry, switched to college teaching and then to high school teaching.

Sounds like a good doctoral thesis question, Helen. Are you working on one? IF so best of luck.

What about former teachers that have transitioned to STEM teachers?

I have a BS in chemistry with 16 years industrial research experience, followed by doctoral and postdoctoral research in biophysics, then I transitioned to teaching high school....
