LTEC Staff Profile: Donna Eatinger


Donna Eatinger


School Development Specialist

Professional Background

Before joining the staff at UChicago STEM Education, I was an elementary school educator for 13 years. I taught first, second and third grade in both urban and suburban schools. I was a computer programmer, independent consultant and Microsoft trainer for several years prior to being an elementary educator.

Why is LTEC my jam?

I am excited to work with LTEC because I get to use both of my skill sets to help students! I am amazed at the level of student engagement using computer science to help with math concepts. I taught Everyday Mathematics for nine years, so I am thrilled to be working with some of the outstanding authors of this curriculum!

What I do with my spare time

I love to read, practice yoga, and run. I also love spending time with my husband, daughter, son and dog.

Fun facts

  • I went on a 10-day hiking trip in Greece.
  • I love spending time in Cape Coral, Florida.
  • I meet with my teacher friend group every month to discuss books, movies, travel, food and teaching!
