Katey Shirey, Ph.D.

Dr. Katey Shirey’s work stems from her combined interests in science, art, and education. Dr. Shirey graduated from the University of Virginia with bachelor’s degrees in physics and sculpture. She received her master’s in secondary science education, also from Virginia, and taught Physics at Washington-Liberty High School in Arlington, VA.

Dr. Shirey received her Ph.D. in 2017 from the University of Maryland in Curriculum and Instruction with a focus on teacher challenges and productive resources for integrating engineering design into high-school physics. Through her work as a Knowles Teacher Initiative Senior Fellow and founder of eduKatey, Dr. Shirey helps high-school science and math teachers leverage engineering-design instruction for content learning and increased student problem-solving agency.
