STEM Teacher-Everett High School, Everett, MA

Anna has been teaching for eight years, the last seven at Everett High School. She studied Math Education at Purdue University, BS, and Harvard University, MA. While teaching math, she discovered a need for STEM education, particularly in the area of engineering. Anna and a colleague developed a pathway for STEM education by creating the STEM Academy at Everett High School in which she is the math and engineering teacher. For two years, Anna developed her own curriculum before learning more about Project Lead the Way. This is her second year with PLTW and is currently teaching POE, CEA and EDD.
