Long Island STEM Education Leadership Association 


The purposes of the organization are:

  • To pursue continuing improvement of science education through leadership on Long Island.
  • To provide leadership and disseminate pertinent information in the fields of science education and science supervision by conducting public meetings, conferences, and workshops.
  • To present, to appropriate agencies, items of concern to science educators.



Our vision for equity includes access to high quality science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education for all students, including the representation of diverse voices in LISTEMELA membership, leadership and participating teachers and student teachers. STEM fields only thrive where diverse questions and perspectives are included. As the National Science Teaching Association so aptly stated, “equity is at the heart of science and teaching, and education is a beacon of light for our students.”
