I am Steve Beckelhimer, retired STEM Coordinator at the West Virginia Department of Education. I was assigned to the June Harless Center at Marshall University where I directed STEM professional development in school districts throughout West Virginia. Before coming to WVDE, I was chair of the science department at Cabell Midland High School. Previously, I was Assessment Director of the West Virginia Department of Education.
I am a certified Master Gardener in West Virginia and Kentucky. I am also a certified West Virginia Master Naturalist. I am proud to be an Admiral in the Cherry River Navy and a Kentucky Colonel. Each of these organizations has a strong commitment to volunteer service and dedication to the community.
In retirement, I enjoy working on our Central Kentucky property, fishing, gardening, traveling and geocaching. I especially enjoy hiking with my wife, a retired Director of Technology in Putnam County (WV) Schools.
When we travel, we keep an online travel journal and post our photos to the web.
