Alice Gilchrist is the Director of Client Services for the South Carolina Coalition of Mathematics and Science which is the parent organization for S²TEM Centers SC. She joined S²TEM Centers SC in June 1996 as a Science Specialist. Her work currently focuses on meeting client needs across the state of South Carolina as the Director of Client Services.
Prior to joining S²TEM Centers SC, Alice taught elementary school in Laurens County School District 56 at Joanna-Woodson Elementary School. Alice's classroom teaching experience is in upper elementary grades where she established a science lab for third through fifth grade students using research-based science kits.
With a Masters Plus 30, Alice has had many opportunities to learn from others and counts her time spent with NASA scientists as one of her greatest learning experiences. As former president of the South Carolina Science Council, (SC)2, and a member of many local and national educational organizations, being an advocate of high-quality education for our students is her greatest passion.
As a life-long learner, Alice likes to continually increase her content knowledge. She is in the process of learning more about STEAM: integrating the Arts and the content areas. It was through the arts that school became alive for her, and she realizes that many students can be reached just as she was.
