Teacher professional development and classroom resources across the curriculum
Sue Mattson received a B.A. in Biology from the University of California at Berkeley, followed by a Master's in Biology and Ph.D. in Science Education from Florida State University. In addition to teaching, her experiences include curriculum development in the sciences and professional development for teachers. Sue has taught science methods courses for early childhood and elementary education majors, and has recently served as an instructor in a website-based distance learning program for practicing elementary teachers seeking Master's or Specialist's degrees in Science and/or Math Education. She has worked previously with the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics as education specialist for Case Studies in Science Education. Sue is looking forward to returning to the classroom to teach high school biology this fall.
Rebecca Corwin taught fifth grade for ten years, where she enjoyed teaching math and science especially. She is currently Professor of Education at Lesley College, and works with her graduate students in an elementary school in Boston in order to bring their practical and theoretical experience together as they learn to be teachers. She has authored a number of books for teachers, including the Used Numbers series about statistics and data analysis. Probably the most important aspect of her work is helping people make sense of the work that they do. She enjoys trying new things and working with children to understand their thinking.
