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. In helping teens make more informed career decisions, I know I can make the world a better place by unleashing the torrent of talent that is presently being stifled.
Career In STEM has grown exponentially to 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. Today our store contains over 150 resources used in nearly 10,000 classrooms across the USA and abroad.
