A middle school science teacher in the Williamsville Central School District is one of 10 teachers nationwide chosen to help promote the STEM curriculum of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Kenneth L. Huff, a teacher at Mill Middle School, was named this week to serve as a 2017 STEM Teacher Ambassador. The program aims to train the teachers in communication skills so they can provide input on policies for K-12 STEM education on the local, state and federal level, according to a news release.
Selections were made by the National Science Teachers Association and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.
Huff began teaching in 1993 and serves on the state Education Department’s science education steering committee. He also leads a Young Astronaut Council for students in grades 5-8 at his school.
