Stephanie Melville is a Central Office Math Coach for the San Diego Unified School District, currently serving the Institute of Education Sciences as a Data Science Education Impact fellow. An avid member of several Data Science Education forums, Stephanie is passionate about bringing dynamic change to TK-12 education. She began the Data Science initiative in San Diego Unified by increasing access to relevant and rigorous STEM courses, providing flexible pathways to graduation, and paving the way for future pathways as industry demands. Her greatest hope is to see equitable education policy put into place that makes data science a non-negotiable part of curricula, allowing historically excluded populations to gain entry to fields in which their voices are desperately needed.
