LTEC Staff Profile: Donna Eatinger
October 30, 2019
School Development Specialist
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.
- 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!
