Amanda in a classroom

Amanda McBride | Educator Fellow
Linus Pauling Middle School | Corvallis, OR

Amanda’s career in STEM began with outdoor education in the mountains of Big Bear, CA and on the beaches of Catalina Island. Her experiences took her south to Costa Rica where she taught middle school science. Amanda has since co-designed the middle school STEM curriculum for the Corvallis School District and continues to teach it today. She actively encourages her students to try new things and expand their scope by integrating real-world teachings into her lessons. Amanda lives with her family in Corvallis, OR where she is a board member of the Ten Rivers Food Web as well as an active member of her community.
