BIOGRAPHIES:

Kristoffer (Kris) Carroll

Mr. Carroll currently serves as director of the Science, Health, Physical Education, and Driver Education Department in the Curriculum and Instruction Division (CID) of the Clark County School District. He formerly held roles as a high school science educator, secondary science project facilitator, curriculum and technology coordinator for the Innovative Learning Environments, K–12 Regional Science Trainer for the Southern Nevada Regional Professional Development Program (SNRPDP), and science coordinator for CID. He has earned a Bachelors of Science in Education, a Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction, and a Master of Educational Policy & Leadership from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

Mr. Carroll is a nationally-recognized science and STEM curriculum and instruction expert. He is one of only a handful of Level 4 Leader Credentialed EQuIP Rubric for Science experts, consulted with Achieve, Inc. and serves as a consultant for NextGenScience at WestEd. Mr. Carroll has facilitated over a hundred Next Generation Science Standards-Designed evaluation sessions providing much needed support to state and school district leaders across the country to ensure that all students experience access and opportunity to engage in high-quality science instructional material. At a local level, he supports all Nevadans in moving toward more equitable access to high-quality STEM resources as a member of the Nevada Governor's Office of Science, Innovation & Technology, Informal STEM Learning Environments (ISLE) Subcommittee and a Southern Nevada Regional STEM Network Advisory Committee Member.

Audri Rosen

Mrs. Rosen is an experienced educator with over 19 years of dedicated service to the Clark County School District (CCSD). She currently serves as a science coordinator in the Curriculum and Instruction Division (CID) of CCSD. She formerly held roles as a secondary science educator, technology integration project facilitator, and assistant principal. She graduated from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas with a Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences. She also holds a Master of Administration and Supervision from the University of Phoenix.

Mrs. Rosen has presented at Computer Using Educator (CUE) Conferences on innovative topics that leveraged technology integration to support student access to high-quality science instruction. In addition, Mrs. Rosen effectively increased both content knowledge and pedagogical skills among educators by serving as a teacher-leader for the CCSD Employee Onboarding and Alternate Routes to Licensure (ARL) Programs.Through her facilitation of instructional modules for science disciplines, she successfully onboarded over one hundred newly hired and future science educators. Her efforts in science education have been instrumental in framing and guiding initiatives to support district-wide adoption and implementation of the Nevada Academic Content Standards for Science (NVACSS), based on the Next Generation Science Standards. By participating in task force work to develop guidance around NVACSS, and facilitating coherent, curriculum-based professional learning, she has continued to ensure that all students in CCSD have equitable access to high-quality, phenomena-driven, standards-designed science instruction.
