Email: athreatt @ s2temsc. org
In 2002, Amy Threatt joined the now S²TEM Centers SC as an Education Specialist. Her current roles vary from providing individual support to teachers as they infuse literacy in the mathematics and science classroom through the IQ-MS Disciplinary Literacy research project to providing technical support to district staff intent on establishing systemic change in mathematics and science. STEM to STEAM is another area of focus as she supports schools wishing to become STEAM schools.
For the past 13 years, Amy has been a model of active learning by immersing herself in all areas of instructional coaching. In 2014, she completed the rigorous requirements of Thinking Collaborative and was named as a Cognitive Coaching℠ Training Associate.
As an educator for more than 20 years, Amy is a strong advocate of science education and the need to foster curiosity and purposeful use of technology in the classroom. Most recently, Amy has been diligent in designing and maintaining paperless support for presentations so that participants can “plug in” with their mobile device and join in the active learning electronically.
Amy holds a B.S. in Physics from the College of Charleston and a M.Ed. from the University of Charleston. She is an accomplished professional with a strong interest in instructional practices and cognitive processes as well as helping others develop their own self-directedness.
