Bio

Dr. Juliann Dupuis joined the faculty at Notre Dame of Maryland in August of 2012. During her tenure, she has helped to develop the Leadership in Teaching STEM program, teaching many of the courses. In addition to the STEM program, she has taught both the graduate and undergraduate science and social studies methods courses at the elementary and secondary levels. In all of her courses, Dr. Dupuis uses community partners to provide authentic real-world experience to immerse her students in the content and pedagogy of STEM education.

Dr. Dupuis has successfully developed the STEM program through a partnership with 100K in 10, a national network committed to solving one of our country’s most pressing challenges – giving kids a great STEM education – by adding 100,000 more, excellent STEM teachers to America’s classrooms by 2021. In addition, she has created a STEM summer camp for students in Kindergarten through 8th grade, hosted STEM networking meetings, presenters, and held STEM festival events as part of the Maryland State STEM Festival. At the state level, Dr. Dupuis helped to develop the Maryland State STEM Framework.

Dr. Dupuis feels strongly about Environmental and STEM education and is an active member of both the North American Association of Environmental Education and the Maryland Association for Environmental ad outdoor Education. She served on the conference planning committee for MAEOE in various capacities, including as co-chair.
