My name is Stephanie Williams and I am a graduate student in the Department of Education at the University of Maryland. My research focuses on teacher education and professional development in online spaces. My teaching experience is varied, though currently, I am the Lead Physical Science Educator for the Carnegie Academy of Science Education and a religious educator for Cedar Lane Unitarian Universalist Church. 

My research interests and constantly evolving, but currently, I am interested in professional development around teacher noticing, and how the culture of science impacts who participated in it.

Diversity and equity are imperative in my research and teaching, with an emphasis on science by inquiry.
