PUSD Honors John Muir High School Science Teacher Susana Oliu
John Muir High School Science Teacher Susana Oliu is the newest recipient of an award designed to help underserved students soar when it comes to competition. Ms. Oliu is one of only 66 educators nationwide who will receive a $3000 stipend to serve in the Society for Science Advocate Program for the 2021-2022 school year. As an advocate, Ms. Oliu will mentor her students through STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) competitions.
The program also provides year-round training to teachers as they help kids complete applications and navigate the competition process. For young scientists, contests can inspire confidence, enable them to experience the thrill of discovery, and can lead to future STEM careers. Ms. Oliu has been teaching Pasadena Unified students with mild-to-moderate disabilities since 2008.
