Ms. Fitzerald -- Board of Governors, NJ Mathematics and Science Coalition

High School science teacher, Colleen Fitzgerald, has been asked to serve on the Board of Governors for the newly transformed New Jersey Mathematics and Science Coalition.

This organization has existed as a Mathematics Coalition in the past and is now adding science to the focus. The Board of Governors consist of about fifty members statewide – mathematicians and math educators; scientists and science educators; state legislators; leaders from the New Jersey Department of Education and the New Jersey Commission on High Educations; and individuals with a strong interest in education from the business and public sectors of New Jersey.

The Coalition is an autonomous organization responsible to this independent Board of Governors and is based at the Rutgers University Center for Mathematics, Science, and Computer Education.

As policy decisions are made that have influence on mathematics and science education in New Jersey, the Coalition intends to play an important role in how these are shaped and to help ensure that the policy decisions are ones that have the broad support of those who are committed to excellent science and mathematics education for all students.

Congratulations, Ms. Fitzgerald!
