Science Education Coordinator

headshot of betsy leongI'm Betsy Leong, Secondary Science Education and STEM Outreach Coordinator.

As a Wheaton Alumna and graduate of the Science Secondary Education Program in 2007, I am honored and excited to be back at Wheaton. I love science, a lot. I also love teaching, a lot. Having taught ninth grade Biology and Physical Science for 6 years, I am excited to be sharing my love of both with our students. 

Over the last several years the Secondary Science Education Program has grown exponentially as the need for science teachers grows globally. There is no doubt that science teachers are in high demand. Our Secondary Science Education graduates have a 100% hire rate and go on to teach nationwide as well as internationally. 

Students who choose the Science Teacher Education major and/or the Master of Arts in Teaching program will study with award winning faculty in both the science department of their choice and the Wheaton Department of Education. You will also be given opportunities for grants, scholarships, and research in both your field of science and education.

I am here to ensure that you are successful during your time at Wheaton and to help you navigate your way into a classroom once you graduate.If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Welcome to Wheaton.
