ROSEDALE, MD—Dr. Edralin Pagarigan, a middle school science teacher at Golden Ring Middle School, has been named a 2024 CDC Science Ambassador Fellow.

The CDC Science Ambassador Fellow program supports professional development opportunities for science teachers across the country. As a part of the program, Pagarigan will participate in a CDC course in Atlanta, Georgia, which will focus on foundational epidemiology and public health concepts. She will also collaborate with experts to develop STEM lesson plans.

In addition to her work developing STEM lesson plans, Pagarigan will participate in leadership and networking sessions related to teaching public health. She will also consult on the development of resources for middle and high school teachers nationwide. Pagarigan’s work has been published in professional journals, and she has presented at conferences across the nation. She is passionate about science education and believes in using technology to engage and inspire students.

Pagarigan has served as a science teacher in Baltimore County, Prince George’s County, and Florence, Arizona. She has been in a variety of leadership roles. In 2019, Pagarigan became the Magnet Schools Assistance Program grant coordinator, which allows her to manage implementation of the school’s health sciences magnet program. The program focuses on developing curriculum, supporting professional development, engaging parents, and leading countywide meetings.

When BCPS’ newest middle school, Nottingham Middle School, opens in fall 2024, Pagarigan will transfer there.
