I look forward to working together with our membership, especially through networking, our scholarly work, advocacy and the community capacity we’ve built.”

The School Science and Mathematics Association is the world’s oldest STEM organization, dating back to 1901. In addition to hosting a national convention, the association publishes the School Science and Mathematics Journal, and the newsletter, Mathematic-Science Connector.

Dr. Mohr-Schroeder has been a faculty member at the University of Kentucky since 2006. She began her career as a junior high, high school, community college, and college mathematics instructor.

Dr. Mohr-Schroeder holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in mathematics from Pittsburg State University in Kansas. She earned a Ph.D. in curriculum and instruction with a concentration in mathematics education from Texas A&M University.
