Educators Join Nassau BOCES Doshi STEM Institute

districtlogo2Three new teachers were appointed this year to the faculty of the Nassau BOCES Doshi STEM Institute, Long Island’s first science-centered high school. Bruce Beck of Farmingdale is teaching advanced placement environmental science, principles of engineering and research; Paulette D’Alessio of West Babylon is teaching living environment at the honors level, introduction to engineering and research; and Derek Paolina of Baldwin is teaching advanced placement physics and research. 

The Nassau BOCES Doshi STEM Institute is a pioneering educational program for select students from across Long Island who have demonstrated an interest and aptitude for science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). The curriculum surpasses the New York State common core and offers a challenging course of study in engineering, research, robotics, mathematics, physics, chemistry and biology. Students are taught by dually certified instructors and work directly with scientists, technicians, engineers and industry leaders from world-famous institutions such as Brookhaven National and Cold Spring Harbor laboratories.

“These three new teachers are a fine addition to our expert faculty,” said Nassau BOCES Doshi STEM Institute Principal Jack Lenson. “I’m extremely impressed with their respective skill sets. Each of them has demonstrated a desire to improve professionally and a willingness to collaborate. They see their collective purpose as mentoring and guiding their students to success, both in and out of the classroom. Our new faculty members will be invaluable in helping us to provide our students with a foundation for the future.”
