Madelon V. Stewart has enjoyed a rewarding career as a consultant and educator translating educational theory into useful, results-oriented programs and projects. Her goal in collaborating with teachers and administrators whether in curriculum development, organizational improvement, technology in the classroom or performance assessment has been to strengthen public education through innovative teaching strategies that can lead to improved student learning. Creating partnerships with those inside and outside the educational community to meet shared goals is a hallmark of her work. She is frequently asked to develop, market and conduct seminars, conferences, and workshops for diverse audiences.
Dr. Stewart was a professor in the College of Education at Rider University in New Jersey until 2012, during which time she managed two state-wide performance assessment projects for school districts and teachers. Funded by the business community, the CAPS and NJPAA initiatives sought to implement child development, curriculum, and staff development programs to improve educational results. Her prior positions include long-range planning at Temple University, WNET/Thirteen in NYC and the City College of New York.
In Florida, Dr. Stewart brings these same skills to her role as a member League of Women Voters of Lee County, Florida, and her work with the Randell Research Center on Pine Island. Her goal is to use proven techniques of long-range planning, needs assessment, project management and collaboration to increase the level of civic engagement across the community.
Dr. Stewart earned her doctorate from Teachers College, Columbia University, an M.Ed from Teachers College, Columbia University and an M.S. from The Bank Street College of Education in New York City.
