Supporting Teachers

We give science teachers the tools and skills to help students overcome misconceptions and misinformation about climate change, evolution, and the nature of science.

Traci Richardson-McVicker

Stillwater High School

Traci Richardson-McVicker started teaching by accident. She has always loved science, but when Richardson-McVicker applied for a lab assistant job as an undergrad and found out it also came with teaching responsibilities,  she was terrified, to say the least. That first semester though, Richardson-McVicker realized how much fun it was to help students figure out how the world works. Thirteen years later, she loves teaching science even more and especially loves learning with students from small, rural communities like the one where she grew up.
