From: Teacher Leaders NetworkOn June 21, two TeacherSolutions team members participated in AACTE’s Annual Day on the Hill, which as this year’s focus, considered Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) educator preparation. Exemplary secondary STEM teachers, Lisa Suarez-Caraballo (OH) and Valdine McLean (NV), will share their success in the classroom and provide recommendations to policymakers on how to address the critical shortage of effective STEM teachers. To investigate this topic further, review the testimony of Suarez-Caraballo and McLean. You can also read the insights of Robin Willner, IBM’s Vice President of Global Community Initiatives, and an overview of the STEM issue from Linda Darling-Hammond, Charles E.
