Instructor(s)Peggy Taylor, EdD. As a graduate of the MSSE (1st Cohort) and CLTW programs at Montana State University, Peggy is very familiar with this institution and the MSSE program. Her doctoral program involved designing and implementing a distance induction program for beginning teachers of science and mathematics. She has a strong undergraduate background in biology and chemistry and her teaching experience spans levels from elementary to graduate education. The majority of her twelve years of K-12 teaching experience was at the high school level and she taught most science disciplines including biology, human biology, anatomy/physiology, AP biology, chemistry, AP chemistry, and physical science. Before accepting the Director’s position for MSSE, she was the program coordinator for the Alternative Licensure Program at San Juan College where she worked in recruiting, admitting, advising, and guiding teacher candidates in the program.
