Science Teacher at Appleton North High School
Sheryl Stidham-Gebert is a science teacher at Appleton North High School in Appleton, WI. After completing a B.S from Purdue University, she moved to Wisconsin with her family, where she completed the teaching degree program at UW-Oshkosh. Having taught for two years in Texas, she returned to the Fox Valley, where she began teaching at Appleton North. She has continued teaching there for the past sixteen years. She completed her master's degree from Marian University in 2002. The students at Appleton North began participating in the Lower Fox River Watershed Management Project in 2010. The students have greatly enjoyed the opportunity to do real science in which they get dirty and get out into the field on Apple Creek. Besides the amazing T-shirts that were designed and worn, the team has jelled to become a highly functional group. Older students mentor the younger students, lab techniques are refined and practiced, and clear communication skills have developed as the project has progressed. Besides standing knee-deep in a mucky stream to do data collection, she enjoys reading, travel, and spending time with her family.

Education: M.S.Teaching, Marion University 2002, B.S.from Purdue University
