Re: Susan Mullane, a CEI Research Associate:

‘Suzan is an amazing speaker! I feel privileged to have attended the STEM/STEAM workshop. I have heard of STEM before but was not sure how it related to social studies and project-based learning. Ms. Mullane showed me how easy it was to infuse; I learned more from her in one day than an entire semester with some professors. Thank you!’

‘”Melissa Maynard

Tug Valley High School, Mingo County, WV

‘I just wanted to send you a quick note and tell you thank you so much for having Mrs. Mullane there today. I thought STEM wouldn’t work in a History classroom until she showed us how it already is and how beneficial it really can be. Thank you for your hospitality. On behalf of all the Tug Valley Teachers in attendance, I thank you very much.’

‘”Melissa Maynard

History Teacher, Mingo County Schools, WV

‘After two days of Ms. Mullane’s presentations, I was sad to see her leave. I was ready to hire her for our permanent professional development specialist here in Huntington. PD is not always welcomed with enthusiasm; Ms. Mullane, on the other hand ‘WOW-ed’ us and engaged the most reticent to full participation. We look forward to have her back next year for several more sessions.’

Director of Title One Services, Cabell County Schools, WV, and Board of Trustees for International Alliance of Invitational Learning
