I started Career In STEM in May of 2017 out of the frustrations I experienced as a science teacher in Hartford, CT. My students had no idea what they wanted to be. And think about it – how do you know what you want to do until you have DONE it? The truth is, you won’t, and I couldn’t find a good way to help my students learn about STEM careers – before they graduated – so I made one, and Career In STEM was born!
I was also shocked into action when I read that 85% of people worldwide hate their jobs. I know God has given each and every one of us tremendous passion and gifts, and it has become my mission to change this statistic one youth at a time.
Today Career In STEM continues to grow exponentially with over 1 million visitors each year. As a teacher, naturally first step was to create games, posters, and lessons for other teachers to use in their classrooms. Our next business milestone is to connect our audience of teens interested in STEM with those who need their talents; STEM employers. We are honored to be the world’s leading provider of STEM career resources used in over 13,000 classrooms across the USA and abroad.
