Michelle has a passion for science, science education, and science learners of all ages. She is focused on the implementation of the CA NGSS by promoting three-dimensional learning and phenomena-based instruction, K-12. At the heart of her work is assisting districts in identifying the barriers which create gaps in opportunities for students to access science education thereby increasing the percentage of economically disadvantaged students, minority students, and girls that pursue STEM careers.
