Janelle M. Johnson is an Associate Professor of STEM Education at Metropolitan State University of Denver. She is co-editor of STEM21: Equity in Teaching and Learning to Meet Global Challenges of Standards, Engagement, and Transformation (2018), and principal investigator on two National Science Foundation grants— A Community-based Approach to Engaging Students and Teachers in Effective STEM Education, an ITEST grant based on GLOBE protocols, and Inclusive STEM Teaching Preparation at an Urban Commuter University, a Robert Noyce grant. Her work focuses on professional development with teachers towards interdisciplinary and inclusive STEM teaching and learning, helping them to develop non-deficit lenses while centering the needs of their students who have been less engaged with science.
