Dr. Julie Angle, associate professor in science education and Bill and Billie Dean Buckles Innovation in Teaching Endowed Professor, is the recipient of the 2019 Jack Renner Distinguished Service to Oklahoma Science Education Award from the Oklahoma Science Teachers Association. Angle received the award, which recognizes individuals who have made significant contributions to the advancement of science education in Oklahoma, at the organization’s annual summer conference earlier this month.
“Dr. Angle is committed to serving inservice and preservice science teachers across Oklahoma,” said Jenn Sanders, head of the School of Teaching, Learning and Educational Sciences. “She also devotes an immense amount of time to mentoring youth in science education through community outreach programming. We are delighted that her service and community engagement is being recognized with this award.”
Prior to joining the Oklahoma State faculty in 2009, Angle spent 25 years in the classroom teaching science at Alva High School and Medford High School. She achieved National Board Certification in 2003 and earned her doctorate from OSU in 2006. In 2008, Angle represented the state of Oklahoma as an Albert Einstein Distinguished Educator Fellow in Washington D.C., where she worked at the National Science Education Foundation in the Office of Cyberinfrastructure. Angle has served as the co-chair for the rewrite of the National Board of Professional Teaching Standards for Science, and she was a member of the executive development and review committee for the 2013 Oklahoma Academic Standards for Sciences (OASS). Her national involvement with science education includes work with the National Association of Biology Teachers (NABT) as a regional coordinator for Arizona, Arkansas, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas; chair of the NABT Preservice Science Teacher Committee; and NABT Executive Board member. For the past nine years, Angle has directed two prominent science education initiatives on OSU’s campus, including National Lab Day and the regional Junior Science and Humanities Symposium. Most recently, she coordinated the Oklahoma State Science and Engineering Fair (OSSEF) for the state of Oklahoma.
