Ms. Bridget Tuberty earned a B.S. from Tulane University in 1995 and then went on to complete a Teacher Certification Program at Tulane in 1997. She taught various Middle School and High School science classes in both New Orleans and Florida from 1997-2002. This led her to earn an M.S. working in conjunction with Dr. Max Dass from Appalachian State University in 2007. This work resulted in the following publication:
Tuberty, B., Dass, P.M., & Windelspecht, M. (2011). Students understanding of scientific hypotheses, theories & laws: Exploring the influence of a non-majors introductory biology course. International Journal of Biology Education, 1, 23-41.
Ms. Tuberty’s area of expertise is in science education and although she is not currently conducting research, her specific area of interest is scientific literacy. Ms. Tuberty has been teaching at Appalachian State University since 2004 and her favorite thing about teaching is helping a student get through a course that many find intimidating and or challenging.
She also loves to travel, hike & cook.
