Lindsey is a career-changer that comes to NLCP from the University of Illinois at Chicago’s Masters of Education program. After earning her bachelor’s degree at the University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana in integrative biology and English, she pursued work in Chicago’s journalism industry. Lindsey spent six years in digital, radio and video media, working as a news producer, copy chief and reporter. Eventually, Lindsey began to miss the world of science and started looking for greater ways to contribute to her city, leading to work in secondary education. Lindsey believes in learning by doing and providing students with approaches to science that are significant in and relevant to their own lives and communities.
Lindsey plays lock for Chicago Women’s Rugby Football Club, enjoys kickboxing and can be seen pedaling Chicago’s streets on her beat-up royal blue mountain bike, Trixie.
The vision for the NLCP Science Department is to engage all science students in academically rigorous work that is embedded within a socially conscious curriculum, which empowers students to critically evaluate their world.
The focus of our instruction is to equip students with content, skills, Praxis, and emotional readiness to not only graduate from high school and a competitive university or college, but to positively impact their life’s aspirations.
