School looks different for most students this year, and that change requires a new focus on their social emotional learning needs. Watch our latest implementation support video as Meg Goodner, national director of implementation services for PhD Science®, and four district partners discuss social-emotional learning during this challenging school year as well as unique ways that classroom teachers are building community and allowing students to continue to drive science learning from home and in the classroom.
Meg Goodner is the national director of implementation services for PhD Science. Upon joining Great Minds in 2017, Meg supported many aspects of curricular development, including assets and permissions, materials and investigations, and the PhD Science California Edition. In Spring 2018, Meg’s customer service background provided her the opportunity to support 36 teachers in 10 districts in seven states as the pilot program manager in PhD Science’s first in-classroom pilot. These pilot teachers were instrumental in providing feedback to inform future module development. In school year 2018–2019, Meg continued pilot management by providing implementation support to 900 teachers in 58 districts across the United States. She continues to support the implementation of PhD Science district partners and is eager to continue building a community of implementers who are dedicated to providing high-quality science education to students.
