After graduating from the University of New Hampshire with a B.S. in life sciences, she worked as a research assistant in immunogenetics at the Jackson Laboratory of Mammalian Genetics in Bar Harbor, Maine. After starting a family, she entered teaching as a high school and middle school science teacher for fifteen years during which time she received several awards including the 1992 Presidential Award for Excellence in Secondary Science Teaching, the 1993 Milken National Educator Award, and the 1994 AT&T Governor’s fellow for Technology. She served as an NSTA District II Director (1997-2000) and member of the NSTA Executive Board (1998-2000) and was a Fellow in Cohort 1 of the NSF-funded WestEd National Academy of Science and Mathematics Education Leadership. She conceived the idea of curriculum topic study while completing her masters in science education at the University of Maine. Several years later her work led to submission of a successful proposal to the National Science Foundation. Her first published book, Curriculum Topic Study- A Systematic Approach to Utilizing National Standards and Research will soon be followed by a series of three books published by NSTA. The first book, Probing Students Ideas in Science- Volume 1 by Page Keeley, Lynn Farrin, and Francis Eberle is currently in press.
