I have forty-seven years of experience as an educator. I have been a teacher, Math and Science Department Chair, Curriculum Coordinator, Principal, NASA Education Specialist, Coordinator of the NASA Student Observation Network, and Lead for Professional Development and Thematic approaches for NASA Planetary Science Education Forum. My emphasis has been on development of innovative programs and curriculum. In the process I have kept current with education research, curriculum innovation and management techniques. I have designed innumerable courses to include more innovative methodology, especially the use of computers for data acquisition and manipulation and communication. I currently have my own consulting business, sySTEMec LLC - systemic STEM education consulting.
