Kelli Grabowski teaches Science 8 and Earth Science at Hamburg Middle School. Kelli is the Executive Vice President of the Buffalo Association of Professional Geologists. She earned her Bachelor's degree in Geology from SUNY Geneseo and her Master's degree in Science Education from SUNY Brockport. Kelli works to foster a love for Earth and an understanding that all of Earth's systems are connected. She does so by creating relevant and cooperative learning experiences for her students. She looks forward to collaborating with other Master Teacher fellows to learn new ways to help students overcome learning obstacles, understand the processes involved in doing science, and develop a more comprehensive perspective of science in their lives.
