Babette Moeller, PhD, is a researcher and program developer who works to improve educational outcomes for elementary, secondary, and postsecondary students with disabilities in STEM.
Moeller’s most significant achievement is the development of Math for All, a teacher professional development series that prepares K–5 teachers to help students with diverse strengths and needs—including those with disabilities—achieve high-quality, standards-based learning outcomes in mathematics. She regularly presents on issues including universal design for learning, improving STEM teaching and learning for students with disabilities, and the promise of technology to support students with different learning needs.
An active member of professional teacher organizations, Moeller represents EDC’s Center for Children and Technology within 100Kin10, a national network of organizations devoted to adding 100,000 more highly qualified STEM teachers to America’s classrooms by 2021. Moeller is also a past president of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, a professional group affiliated with the National Science Teacher Association. She is also an adjunct faculty member at Bank Street College of Education and has taught courses in technology integration, media research, and child development at Fordham University’s Graduate School of Education and the New School for Social Research.
Moeller holds a PhD in developmental psychology from the New School for Social Research.
