Guest Bio

Teresa Marx

Teresa is a public school parent and a public school teacher. She has been teaching chemistry for 19 years in the Boston area. Although she has taught a variety of high school sciences, including physics, biology, biotechnology, engineering, organic and biochemistry, she is a chemistry teacher at heart.

Teresa co-founded STEMteachersMassBay in 2017. She is the President-Elect of the AMTA Executive Board, and has been accepted into the Perrone-Sizer Institute for Creative Leadership's 2020-2021 cohort.



[18:35] Teresa Marx: "So I think we're going to try to get some workgroups together as a result of what we heard in the conference, just to get teachers in Zoom rooms, at least, with people in their discipline to kind of work through... Next school year feels like a lot of question marks. So I think to the extent that AMTA as an organization can be positioned to support teachers, to provide them with the tools, the resources, and just the person-to-person support that you need sometimes to get through that. I think that's a really big one."

[33:06] Teresa Marx "[modeling] made me a better teacher in a lot of small ways, and it's made a big difference in terms of the overarching way that my classes operate. Students use our class time for thinking hard."
