Eric Walters

Marymount School of New York
Director of STEM Education
New York, NY

I currently serve as the Director of STEM Education at Marymount School of New York, where I teach Atmospheric Science, AP Physics C: Mechanics, Honors Physics, Videography: Shot on iPhone, and iOS App Development with Swift. As an Apple Distinguished Educator, a Google Certified Educator and an ISTE Certified Educator, I believe that transformative teaching and learning occurs when students (and teachers) construct their own knowledge, collaborate with peers, and represent that knowledge and understanding in ways that are meaningful to the learner, all which receiving authentic, relevant, robust, and holistic feedback.

I serve as faculty moderator for the Student Tech Team @ Marymount, which plans the annual STEMxYouth Summit, a day-long celebration of all things STEMx for high school students in the New York City metropolitan area and coordinates the Student Social Media Team, which provides resources and webinars for faculty, administrators, parents and students on teen social media use from the user perspective.  I also moderate CODE, our Upper School Coding Club, which provides coding experiences and learning for faculty and students.  CODE also coordinates and runs the National Computer Science Honor Society for Girls, which celebrates the success of high school females in coding (with seven chapters nationwide). 

I also have a B.S. in Meteorology from UMassLowell; an MS in Atmospheric Science from SUNY-Albany; a professional certificate in online education from UCSD; and a certificate in television writing from UCLA.  I have also published a series of friction books under the umbrella title My Life with Liam (On Topanga Canyon Blvd). Junior Year was published in winter 2018; Best Kid Ever was published in September 2019; and TailSpin was published in March 2020.  The latest book in the series, Figure It Out, will be published in fall 2021.
