Careers in Education for STEM Graduate Students and Postdocs

Tuesday, February 14, 2017
9:00 am to 10:30 am

There are many opportunities to teach beyond academia. Careers in education are found in K-12 classrooms, at museums and online. Graduate students and postdocs who want to share their interests and knowledge with others should attend this workshop to learn about working with different populations of learners. The panelists will share how they transitioned from STEM disciplines into their current roles, how they found these jobs, and steps that attendees can take to learn more and prepare for careers in education.

Panelists include:

  • Kelly Witter, MS (civil & environmental engineering), MBA, Director of STEM & Environment Outreach at the US Environmental Protection Agency
  • Megan Aldrup-MacDonald, MS (genetics & genomics), Biology Instructor at North Carolina School of Science & Math
  • Geoff Patterson, PhD (mathematics), Math Curriculum Designer at IXL Learning
