Diana Wang-Martin

A successful teacher, mentor and champion for the sciences, Ms. Wang-Martin shares her passion for chemistry, STEM, and the “Four Cs” of learning: critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity. She partners with educators from elementary to post-secondary levels and with community leaders to design and implement opportunities for students to build their Four Cs skills.  

In addition to teaching the sciences, Diana advises and leads the Glenforest STEM team and STEM outreach events such as youth STEM conferences.  She is involved in many other educational initiatives, such as the Nahani STEAM mentorship program, which she founded, where high school students mentor and promote STEAM to elementary students.  Diana instills a joy of science and the STEM disciplines in young people. Her inspiration impacts and inspires students to pursue STEM careers and prepares them to be tomorrow’s leaders.
