Ms. Carey Hancey-Shier

Hello!  I have a bachelors degree in chemistry and biochemistry from Virginia Tech.  I continued my education for six years as a doctoral candidate in biological chemistry at Penn State University.  I have a passion for STEM and have coached/instructed several teams in this field.  For five years I coached FIRST Lego League with tremendous success, taking the team to the World Festival in St. Loius where they garnered the 2nd place Inspiration Award.   Likewise I have coached several teams in Odyssey of the Mind for five years with a team placing 5th (out of 64) at the World Finals at Michigan State University.  Additionally I have instructed competition mathematics where the members earned the highest achievement.  I also enjoy coaching events at the regional and state level in Science Olympiad.  When I am not coaching or instructing, I enjoy college football (GO HOKIES!!!), cooking, drumming, traveling, and training.
