Krista Herbstrith

Carleton College

I was previously a Program Manager for the Science Education Resource Center (SERC), and the Assistant Director for the National Association of Geoscience Teachers (NAGT).

 Collaboration is fundamental to SERC's work. Through its numerous partnerships with both institutions and individuals, SERC works to support educators through professional development, community organizing, workshops, web resources, and research. Previously, I worked with faculty to manage projects involved with undergraduate Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education and worked directly with our numerous advisory boards, cross-disciplinary working groups, and large and small grant project principle investigators. In addition, I was directly responsible for planning, development and implementation of marketing strategies, communications and outreach, and public relation activities on behalf of SERC and the executive office of the National Association of Geoscience Teacher's (NAGT) overarching mission to improve undergraduate geoscience and STEM education. Efforts recently have focused on the Earth Educators' Rendezvous, an event that will bring together researchers and practitioners working in all aspects of undergraduate Earth education.

SERC houses the national headquarters for the National Association of Geoscience Teachers and I was pleased to provide membership and programming support for this organization. NAGT offers a rich array of programming for its members and the broader geoscience community, from awards and workshops to publications and teaching resources.

 I currently work as the Assistant Director of Alumni Relations at Carleton College.
