Richard W. Riley College of Education and Leadership
My name is Marguerite Montefusco and I have been educating students for over 30 years and have never found a dull moment in my teaching career. My teaching has been in chemistry with a bachelor’s and Master’s in biology. I attended Long Island University where I received by bachelor’s degree and continued on to Stony Brook University for my Master’s degree. I also possess a degree in School Administration.
My teaching experience extends from the elementary level up to the college love and I have taught all levels and various disciplines from science research to ESL science. Writing science curriculum, mentoring new teachers and conducting workshops and seminars for my colleagues have been an integral part of my life as an educator.
I am always a positive person, anticipating a great exchange of knowledge and wisdom when I meet other colleagues and always look forward to exchanging ideas and concepts that can make the classroom a better learning environment and an arena of success for our youngsters.
Walden has been a special place for me for the past 14 years. I have taught a few of the core courses such as Teacher as Professional and curriculum and instruction. However, for the past few years I have taught the first course offered in the MSED science program – The Nature of Science which I enjoy very much. I am now on a much bigger journey and that is acquiring a doctorate degree. Of course, what better school to obtain this degree than Walden University!
