We welcome Andrea Silvestri, joins MBS as a Middle School science instructor.
Andrea holds a BA in Biology and Licensure in Secondary Education from Green Mountain College. She comes to us from Purnell School, where she served as a STEM instructor. During the last six years, Andrea not only worked in education but also participated in several research experiences. She has followed Lyme Disease trends in the woods of Vermont, used gene editing technologies at the New York STEM Cell Research Foundation, and worked as a research assistant with a focus on place-based learning.
Andrea states, "As an educator, I strive to provide my students with lessons and tools that will last beyond the classroom. This includes the ability to think critically, thoughtfully, and patiently. I believe that when students are provided with thoughtful and genuine educational experiences, they gain the ability to ask questions and investigate the world around them."
