I am a partner in Art of STEM and co-developer of many K-12 STEM pipeline programs. I love teaching teachers, and I am really patient with kids (sometimes not so patient with adults). More importantly, I am mom to an 8-yr-old and owned by 2 cats. Here is my little family and my awesome Art of STEM partners.
