Biographical Information

Currently a teacher of physics, chemistry, microbiology and anatomy at Glendale High School in Flinton, Nancy Gobert was formerly a science teacher with the Harmony Area School District in rural Westover. During her time there, Mrs. Gobert broadened the scope of the district's science and math programs. She initiated a course that studied biology through the use of microbes and helped develop a math/science unit that required electronic collaboration with students in New York and Michigan. Students in Mrs. Gobert's Science Club engaged in fundraising activities, such as the construction and maintenance of a small greenhouse to pay for science-related field trips. Her ROCK (Rural Outreach Chemistry for Kids) program created partnerships among elementary, secondary and higher education instructors, and encouraged students to consider becoming science teachers. She has received a Regional Summer Schools of Excellence (RSSE) grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Education for her Science on the Lake Project. She also enjoys volunteering time to the Coalport Community Center once a month for her Science on Saturday program.
