Dr. Lorraine Greenfield is a faculty member and currently the interim director of the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Division in the Graduate School of Education. Students in Lesley's Curriculum and Instruction Master's program are usually in-service teachers interested in pursuing a high-level program, perhaps moving beyond their comfort level and challenging themselves to become problem solvers. "As a group, the students are really interested in leadership. They take what they've learned in the program and try to inform their colleagues to help schools raise the standard. My job is to help the students understand how children learn and how they as teachers teach. Merging these two needs is the greatest challenge, but also the greatest reward." Dr. Greenfield has mentored women educators and developed a support organization for them. In 1980, there were four female superintendents in Massachusetts; now there are over 100.
