Meet the Faculty
Willis R. Foster has more than 21 years of experience under his belt. After graduating from North Carolina Central University with a Bachelor of Science in Biology, Foster has nurtured his STEM experience in the Triangle.
After years of mentoring and teaching young adults math and science he has created curriculum guides and lesson plans from students ranging from middle school to his own alma mater. Foster has also cultivated his STEM skills outside of the classroom by working with Integrated Laboratory Systems where he created, audited and inspected laboratory facilities.
Foster has instructed middle and high school students in the Math and Science Education program where he aided in SAT preparations and was an advisor for the Team America Rocketry Competition--showing that he goes the extra mile to mentor the youth. When Willis is out of the classroom-- you can usually find him out on the soccer field coaching Kestrel Heights School students where he currently teaches Science.
Camirra M. Williamson is certified to teach Middle School Science grades 6-9 and Middle School Science Laboratory Safety Training. She graduated Summa Cum Laude Honors from North Carolina State University.
Williamson goes beyond the required curriculum by designing original homework assignments and other assessments. Because of her understanding the importance of preparing children for life after school and gaining real world experience, Williamson planned and implemented hands-on engineering activities that connected STEM to 21st century careers.
Beyond her teaching career, Camirra has worked with young adults by volunteering as a counselor with YMCA Camp High Hopes and being an Educational Advisor for Student Advocating Youth that was designed to connect NCSU college students with at-risk youth in Raleigh.
Dale Haiducek has an extensive background working with children. Dale is always making sure his students are kept up to date with information technology by continuing his own education. He is currently getting a Computer Programming Certificate at North Carolina State University.
Dale has trained teachers how to effectively deliver a research project for a problem based Math unit. He's even helped prepare students for employment after school through the Mayor's Summer Work Program. Dale is certified in all Elementary Education (K-6) subjects and Middle Grades Education (5-9) in Mathematics, Science and Technology.
He continues to go a step further in STEM by volunteering in robotic competitions where he has to manage and support up to 5 robotics teams at one time and engaging in other STEM related activities.
Each faculty member has been carefully selected. With their broad and comprehensive experiences in STEM and areas of expertise, we know students will be provided wonderful and challenging assignments to grow.
