The STEM Hub is conducting a series of Teacher Training workshops led by Dr. Katey Shirey.
Dr. Shirey is a STEAM Education Specialist with 17 years of experience in teaching, teacher training, and curriculum development. Through her consulting business, eduKatey, Dr. Shirey is assisting teachers in the U.S. and around the world with integrated STEAM curriculum development, facilitation support, and the use of innovative educational technologies. Last year, Dr. Shirey utilized her skills to assist the STEM Hub with curriculum adaptation during the rapid transition to online learning necessitated by the pandemic. Prior to starting her own business, Dr. Shirey gained extensive first-hand experience in a STEM classroom thanks to a decade spent teaching and developing STEM curriculum at the university and high school level in various schools. She was also a finalist candidate for the 2012-2013 NASA Astronaut selection and worked as a teacher liaison with researchers at the IceCube Project at the South Pole Research Station in Antarctica. Dr. Shirey’s experience is supported by a thorough educational background in the subject after completing her doctoral studies in science education teaching, learning, policy, and leadership at the University of Maryland in 2017. Additionally, she holds a master’s degree in teaching and two bachelor’s degrees in physics and studio art, supporting her ability to integrate the Arts into STEAM curriculum.
