Janet Struble, a UT doctoral student and program coordinator, has been elected to a position in the National Science Teachers Association.

The association is the largest organization committed to promoting excellence in science teaching and learning with a focus on examining curriculums and outcomes to ensure student and teacher success.

Struble, who is the program coordinator for Leadership for Education Academy for Driving Economic Revitalization and Success and is pursuing her doctorate in curriculum and instruction in the Judith Herb College of Education, Health Science and Human Service, was named the District X council member after being recommended to the nominating committee and running in an election process.

Struble’s three-year term will start June 1 when she will serve the district that includes Ohio, Michigan and Indiana.

“I am proud to represent The University of Toledo in the effort to make science education better for our youth,” she said.

Struble’s involvement in science education in Ohio has included serving as District I director, secretary and president for the Science Education Council of Ohio, which is the state chapter of the National Science Teachers Association, and presenter of the Ohio Science Content Standards to teachers.

She was a classroom teacher for 20 years before coming to UT.
