Director, Rural Teacher Training Inititiative, Georgia BioEd
Kristin Boscan serves as the Director of the Rural Teacher Training Initiative, which brings hands-on bioscience experiences to 7th to 12th grade rural teachers. This experiential training equips teachers with the knowledge, skills, and equipment to arm students with real-life bioscience career competencies and readiness to enter Georgia’s thriving life science industry.
Boscan began her career in education and administration in upstate New York, where she led classroom instruction, professional development, and curriculum writing, as well as pioneered the first middle level alternative program. After 10 years in education, a move to greater-Atlanta led to a career in healthcare staffing and recruiting. Boscan worked with Staffing Innovations and later served as Director of Recruiting and Retention for Transpirus/The Corridor Group. Her extensive skills in marketing, education, and recruitment led to her serving as the second Executive Director for the Innovation Crescent Regional Partnership, which works to build partnerships and relationships toward economic development of the healthcare, life sciences, and biotech industries.
In addition to co-chairing Atlanta’s chapter of Women In Bio’s Programming, Boscan co-chairs Georgia Bio’s Ecosystem Development Committee, and serves as a member of Local School Council for Level Creek Elementary in Gwinnett County.
