Atmos Training 1
Atmos Training 2



Katie St. Denis has 11 years of experience in education, teaching Earth Science, Living Environment, and Environmental Sciences to 9th – 12th grade students at Solvay High School in Central New York. During that time, she continued to take on graduate level course work and field study opportunities to support her content knowledge in Earth and Environmental Science topics, including advanced atmospheric science courses through SUNY Brockport and paleontology digs in North Dakota and Montana. Katie is currently focused on making the transition to project and problem based learning in an effort to improve student learning outcomes.


After completing the three American Meteorological Society DataStreme courses: 
Atmosphere, Oceans, and Climate System, Katie was selected to participate in the Project Atmosphere at the National Weather Service Training Center in Kansas City, Missouri. The Project Atmosphere is a two-week intensive and comprehensive teacher professional development program designed to provide participating educators an opportunity to master atmospheric education topics dealing with sensing, analyzing, and forecasting weather so that they may go on to provide Peer-led Training to educators in their home region.
