Teacher Enrichment Program Teacher Roundtable Featuring
Jenay Sharp Leach an Albert Einstein Distinguished Education Fellow Emeritus

The Center for Excellence in Education (CEE) invites secondary school teachers in Richmond to participate in CEE’s Teacher Enrichment Program Teacher Roundtable featuring Albert Einstein Distinguished Educator Fellow emeritus, Jenay Sharp Leach.  The event is sponsored by CEE, Apollo Education Group, Capital One Financial Corporation, Claude Moore Charitable Foundation, and ExxonMobil. TEP Teacher Roundtables aim to serve as a forum for secondary school STEM educators to engage in peer-to-peer learning with nationally recognized and ward winning STEM teachers.

The Roundtable will provide discussions on classroom pedagogy, novel teacher-student opportunities, and exposure to myriad other professional development opportunities.  Jenay Sharp Leach will model best practices to effectively use computer simulations in an inquiry-based manner in the STEM classroom. Teachers will learn how to incorporate process skills, nature of science, and content knowledge, as well as NASA resources in their STEM classrooms.

The Center for Excellence in Education (CEE)was founded in 1983 by the late Admiral H.G. Rickover and Joann P. DiGennaro, President of the Center. The Center's mission is to nurture high school and university scholars to careers of excellence and leadership in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, and to encourage collaboration between and among leaders in the global community. CEE sponsors the Research Science Institute (RSI), the USA Biology Olympiad (USABO), and the Teacher Enrichment Program (TEP).  For more information about the Center and its programs, visit CEE’s Web site, www.cee.org

Jenay Sharp Leach is a National Board Certified science teacher. Jenay earned a B.S. in Physics and General Science/Secondary Education from Grove City College and a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership and Administration from the George Washington University.  Jenay is currently a Ph.D. student in Education at the University of Virginia, where she works as a research assistant and supervisor of student teachers.  Her research interests include inquiry, teacher professional development, and science for English Language Learners.  Jenay has worked in Fairfax County Public Schools, Virginia. She served as an Einstein Fellow at NASA in the Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate (ARMD), where she developed science curriculum and education policy. Jenay is the 2011 ARMD Associate Administrator Awards Winner for Program and Mission Support.

The Albert Einstein Distinguished Educator Fellowship Program provides a unique professional development opportunity for accomplished K-12 educators in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) to serve in the national education arena. Fellows spend eleven months working in a Federal agency or in a U.S. Congressional office, bringing their extensive knowledge and experience in the classroom to education program and/or education policy efforts. The Triangle Coalition for STEM Education administers the Albert Einstein Distinguished Educator Fellowship Program on behalf of the US Department of Energy (DOE), in partnership with other participating federal agencies.
