The State University of New York (SUNY) at Geneseo is a nationally recognized, primarily undergraduate institution with approximately 5,000 students, located south of Rochester in the rural village of Geneseo. As a highly-recognized public liberal arts college with very strong programs in both physics and education, Geneseo is uniquely positioned to develop a five-year bachelor’s/master’s program, an innovative model for the education of highly-qualified physics teachers. The limitations of the current certification program create a barrier for some who would otherwise seek teacher certification. This has led Geneseo to propose a five-year program leading to a B.A., M.Ed., and initial Adolescence (AD) certification in science.

We work with our School of Education to prepare HS physics teachers (who major in physics) certified to teach in New York State.

Fletcher is also the Project Director on and NSF MSP-Start project, the Power of Physical Science, to study ways to encourage middle school girls to study the physical sciences.
