More accolades are coming in for Massachusetts based STEM educators. Today we are pleased to highlight the achievements of four women from Sharon who were recently honored with other colleagues from around New England at an event at Boston's Museum of Science in late March. Attendees included representatives from 19 Massachusetts and New Hampshire school districts.
The four from Sharon - Varla Smith, Trish Shea, Eileen Meisner, and Cindy Leary, were noted for their efforts within the Sharon school system to create and improve STEM curricula for their students, with help from the museum's Gateway Project.
Among those there to honor these educators was US Representative Je Kennedy III (D-MA), who serves as honorary chair of MA Governor Deval Patrick's STEM Advisory Council. IN his remarks, Kennedy noted the triple rate of increase in STEM jobs in the current economy, underscoring the importance of quality STEM education.
