Catherine Woodruff, Science Teacher at Brooklyn City School District, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in science.
Ms. Woodruff was always interested in science. She felt that her unique way of giving back to society was to teach students an important subject she is passionate about. In order to accomplish her goal of teaching, she earned an Associate of Arts in Liberal Arts from Tri-C and then went on to receive a Bachelor of Science in secondary education and comprehensive science from Youngstown State University. From there, she matriculated at Kent State University, receiving a Master of Library Science, a Master of Science in mathematics and science, and a Master of Education in curriculum and instruction.
Ms. Woodruff is most proud of becoming a Jennings Urban Fellow at Youngstown. It happened while she was teaching for Youngstown City Schools and there were only 20 people chosen. They had a sister cohort in the Cleveland schools, with about the same number chosen and so just to receive that opportunity was amazing. Since 2009, Ms. Woodruff has been a high school science teacher with the Brooklyn City School District. She was a school librarian previously. Ms. Woodruff would like to continue working as a science teacher in some sort of capacity because she loves what she does. She wants to continue to grow and make a difference, daily. Also getting into some of the technology and some of the different tools that are out there. Her master’s degree in library science has been invaluable with sifting through information and learning about new technology that she can use in her teaching practice.
