Peggy Carnahan

Northside ISD’s new Peggy Carnahan Elementary School serves as one of many indicators of the impact this outstanding science educator has had on San Antonio, the State of Texas, and the nation. In her 44-year career Peggy Carnahan has taught high school biology, directed the science program for NISD (one of the state’s largest and most recognized school districts), directed one of the five national implementation sites for Project 2061 of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), directed the San Antonio Rural Systemic Initiative funded by NSF, founded the Center for Science and Mathematics Education at OLLU, funded master’s degrees for 500 science teachers, and established the state’s largest, most active, and most respected science teacher network. Educator and Industry Advisory Boards established by Carnahan keep her informed of both school and community needs and in touch with potential opportunities to further the growth of science teachers. She was the first female to be named a Fellow of the Texas Academy of Science. Those who work and learn with Peggy Carnahan consider themselves inescapably “Pegged for life.”
