Jana Sebestik received a B.S. in mathematics and M.Ed. in mathematics education from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. She has 34 years of classroom experience teaching mathematics in grades 7-12. She is currently Assistant Director of STEM Curriculum Design in the Office for Mathematics, Science, and Technology Education (MSTE) in the College of Education at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. For the past ten years she has been Education Lead for the DOE/DHS funded Trustworthy Cyber Infrastructure for the Power Grid (TCIPG) project. MSTE works with mathematics and science teachers to integrate technology into K-12 classrooms. TCIPG researchers address the challenge of how to protect the nation's power grid by significantly improving the way the power grid infrastructure is built, making it more secure, reliable, and safe.
