C-STEM Welcomes New Program Director

Please give a warm welcome to new C-STEM Program Director Tiffany Simon. She brings a background rooted in both science and education. "I hold a degree in Biology, which has been instrumental in shaping my educational journey. I have a robust background in teaching various subjects, including Biology, Physics, and Geometry. Currently, I am passionate about and actively engaged in teaching robotics, an area that merges my scientific knowledge with innovative educational practices," she said.

As Program Director, Simon will focus on designing and developing new curriculum, resources, and updates aligned with the latest curriculum standards. This includes enhancing the teacher experience with the Integrated C-STEM Training Institute (ICTI) as well as managing and implementing training sessions to ensure effective delivery of educational programs.

Simon became familiar with C-STEM while a teacher in Northforest ISD. "I was drawn to C-STEM due to its innovative approach and steadfast commitment to providing students and educators with the necessary tools for success in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). This dedication resonated deeply with my own passion for fostering learning and empowerment through these disciplines," she said.

She excited to apply her genuine joy for helping others at C-STEM. "Witnessing the growth and success of my students beyond the confines of the classroom brings me immense fulfillment and motivates me in my educational endeavors," she said.
