Dr. Sarah Koebley
Manager of National Communities of Practice and STEM Learning Ecosystems
Sarah Koebley hails from sunny north Florida where she was raised by an engineer father and nurse practitioner mother. Her large family spent most of its time outside and in or near water; Sarah is convinced that this is the formula that resulted in a love of mathematics, science and all things STEM.
A mathematics undergraduate major led her first to work in designing corporate computer training courses. A masters in Educational Foundations and an eventual doctorate in Curriculum/Instruction supported her statewide Ohio work in school districts and universities with teachers and administrators focused on inquiry-based mathematics and science instruction. She recently expanded this focus globally in her work as the Mathematics Lead for the Department of Defense schools (DODEA) and in consulting with NASA Education Centers as an Evaluation Specialist.
“I currently work as a STEM Consultant and Technical Assistance Lead for TIES in their international STEM Learning Ecosystem initiative.
