Service to SSMA
School Science and Mathematics Association Elections Committee Member, 2014-2017
Vision for SSMA
It would be an incredible honor to serve on the board of the School Science and Mathematics Association, particularly at this moment in time, where interdisciplinary communities of scholars and practitioners are increasingly important. I believe the SSMA has an influential role to play in the narratives highlighting the importance of STEM, STEAM, and STREAM in schools because, after all, SSMA has been creating interdisciplinary connections for decades. SSMA stands well positioned to model interdisciplinary structures for our colleagues working to further STEM/STEAM/STREAM and I would be proud to be a part of SSMA’s significant potential to promote interdisciplinary perspectives in education.
