Jeanne Norris is an Instructional Specialist at the Institute for School Partnership. She designs K-12 science curriculum and professional development for teachers. Jeanne was selected to serve on the Achieve Science Peer Review Panel, a national group of experts who screen curriculum to find high quality examples of NGSS design. Two mySci units she edited have been selected as exemplars, including a 5th grade life science unit that has earned the NGSS Design Badge, the highest honor the panel can award. Jeanne is a graduate of the University of Missouri–St. Louis and Washington University-St. Louis. She holds a degree in Secondary Education and a master’s in Biology. Before joining the ISP, Jeanne taught high school science in the St. Louis Public Schools for six years. Most of all, Jeanne’s vision is that every elementary student in the region gets a chance at daily science education that inspires curiosity and the joy of ‘figuring it out’.
