Dr. Leena Bakshi intensively studies STEM education and how we can create access and opportunities for EACH and EVERY student regardless of race, ethnicity, religion or socioeconomic status. Leena feels that the more diverse our STEM workforce, the more diverse our solutions! Leena earned her B.A. degree in biology from UC Berkeley, M.A. in Education from Claremont Graduate University, and a doctoral degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Southern California. She has researched schools spanning all across the state of California and completed her dissertation on The Successful Implementation of STEM Initiatives in Lower Income Schools. After seeing the limited access that underrepresented students have in STEM subjects, she founded STEM 4 Real. In addition to quality professional learning, the company showcases real-life STEM stars that are breaking barriers and pioneering key breakthroughs in the STEM fields. Through literacy and science, Leena hopes to increase the school to STEM career pipeline with a diversified STEM workforce that will continue to change the world. Are you interested in professional learning #4Real for your teachers? We provide engaging standards-based professional learning with an intentional focus on equity and social justice. We also provide lesson demonstrations, facilitate professional learning communities and provide intensive 1:1 coaching. We would love to partner and support your teachers! STEM4Real.org/partner
