Dr. Stacey Britton is an Assistant Professor of Science Education in the Department of Early Childhood through Secondary Education. After graduating from the University of Georgia in 2011, Dr. Britton began her career in academia as an Assistant Professor at the University of Mississippi. After five years away from home, Stacey came to the University of West Georgia in the Fall of 2016 and teaches primarily early childhood science education courses. A key focus of her teaching involves helping preservice teachers see the connection between classroom learning and the world around them. As a former high school science teacher, specifically biology and environmental science, with teaching experiences in Mississippi and rural Alaska, Dr. Britton helps students explore the natural world and cultural knowledge that can serve as the foundation for integrated learning in the elementary classroom. Stacey's current research focuses on ecojustice pedagogy, online learning platforms for science instruction, and the integration of science into multiple subject areas. Dr. Britton has family in the area, including eight nieces and nephews who attended or currently attend school in Carrollton. She has a dog named Molly, a handful of cows, and a few chickens. When not reading, writing, or teaching, she enjoys spending time with her family, cooking, and quilting.
