De Anna Tibben Candidate Biography
Hi! My name is De Anna Tibben and I am putting my name on the ballot for the IAS-ISTS Secretary position. I have been a member of IAS-ISTS since 1996. Over the years I have had the privilege of serving as Earth Science Interest Chair, ISTS Chair, and Fall Conference Chair. I am currently serving as a Director on the IAS Board. My term will end April 2017.
Since 2010, my students have benefited from IJAS and the opportunities provided. I understand the challenges many science teachers in different districts across Iowa face. I have served on local and state committees and have been a voice for supporting Iowa Science Teachers. I am currently an Instructional Coach with the Ames Community School District. I have 22 years of science teaching experience at the middle and high school levels. I also have experience in teaching undergrad science education programs at ISU and summer workshops for teachers at UNI. If elected, I will work as a member of the IAS-ISTS leadership team to make a difference for Iowa teachers.
