Meet The STEM Unicorn
As a firm believer that all great achievements take time, I believe in long-term equitable solutions that will last through the next generations. I am dedicated to increasing access to STEAM for girls, Blacks, Latin-X, and other groups who are traditionally not in STEAM fields. Finally, creating globally competent educators and students is a staple tenet for all the work I do. This work leads to more equitable, diverse, and inclusionary practices which can ultimately allow our society to thrive, prosper, and grow.

Dr. Coleman was recommended by a school family when the school was looking to start an after-school STEM club. During her first year working with my, she not only started the STEM club, but also taught middle school science for us. The students loved her class as it was hands on, engaging, and challenging. That was also evident in her STEM club. Her leadership skills allowed her to hire the right instructors to work alongside her in the after-school program. STEM club was by far the school’s largest after-school club
