Nicole GalanteDirector, Educational Partnerships and Innovation; Director, Center for Teaching and Learning in CommunitySchool of Professional Development


Dr. Galante opened the Center for Teaching and Learning in Community (CTLC) at Stony Brook in April of 2020. In response to the pandemic, CTLC trained over 3,500 teachers from 18 states and two countries during its first month of existence, and continues to offer opportunities for professional development, research and scholarship, outreach, and mentoring for emerging, existing and transitional teachers and leaders in K12 education and related stakeholders. Because of this work, Dr. Galante was chosen by the New York State Education Department to lead a team to be the evaluative partner on the Teaching in Remote/Hybrid Learning Environments project, funded in August 2020, under the US Department of Education’s Education Stabilization Fund-Rethink K12 Education Models Grants.
