We’re proud to unveil some big news. Aimee Kennedy, the Chief Academic Officer of Metro Early College High School, will be Battelle’s new Vice President for Education and STEM Learning. Here’s a snippet of the release Battelle sent out a few minutes ago:
“Aimee will be a tremendous asset to Battelle and our STEM education initiatives,” said Wadsworth. “Her track record in education leadership roles, combined with her hands-on work in the classroom, brings a well-rounded perspective and will help create a clear path to expand the successes of Metro to other schools and school districts.”
“I’m very excited about the opportunity to join a well-regarded institute like Battelle and continue the momentum around STEM learning,” Kennedy said. “Leading the STEM education work at Battelle is a tremendous opportunity to shepherd the fantastic work at Metro while influencing STEM education in a broader context.” Click here for the full release.
In addition to her years as a dynamic STEM educator and leader at Metro, Aimee’s been a familiar face at many of the network’s trainings for Ohio educators. She’s been a regular presenter at the STEM Leaders Academy and our workshops on the Literacy and Math Design Collaborative teaching tools. In fact, some readers probably remember her from this video about the math tools.
That hands-on connection with the daily work of teachers and administrators is just one more reason she’s going to be a great fit for the role.
