Lundon Pinneo, a graduate of UALR’s master’s program in secondary education with an emphasis in science education, has been selected by the National Science Teachers Association as a member of the NSTA New Science Teacher Academy.
She joins a select group science educators in their second or third year of teaching who are being recognized by NSTA. Each fellow will receive comprehensive membership in NSTA. They will also receive training at the National Science Teachers Association meeting in San Antonio in April with all expenses paid.
Pinneo also will participate in e-mentoring opportunities with other teachers from around the country and share teaching opportunities with other new teachers. She will be recognized at a reception in San Antonio in the spring.
Pinneo currently teaches biology at Maumelle High School in the Pulaski County Special School District.
“Ms. Pinneo is an outstanding teacher, and the College of Education is pleased that she has received this well-deserved recognition” said Dean Angela M. Sewall. “As a new science teacher, Ms. Pinneo goes above and beyond to help her students to both understand and excel in biology.”
