Bohatch accepts Science Specialist position with MCS

MADISON – An award-winning educator and mentor, Carol Bohatch has accepted the position of Science Specialist/Grant Administrator, a new position within the Central Office staff for Madison City Schools.

Bohatch has been teaching science, including pre-advanced placement and AP chemistry, at James Clemens High School.

“My job has two main facets. One is to be the administrator for a DoDEA grant (Department of Defense Education Activity) designed to improve science instruction in grades 4-10. This grant will provide funds for science teacher professional development and science materials,” Bohatch said.

“My other duties will be to contribute to Madison City Schools Instruction Team concentrating in the area of science instruction district-wide, working on providing the best experiences and opportunities for all Madison students to become college- and career-ready,” she said.

While teaching at James Clemens, she founded and runs a teacher-student mentorship program, serves in the faculty senate and co-sponsors Science National Honor Society. With MCS Aspiring Administrators Program, Bohatch promoted a partnership between chemistry professors at the University of Alabama in Huntsville and James Clemens students.

Bohatch’s honors include “Teacher of the Year” at James Clemens.

From her early years in education, Bohatch remembers a collaborative teacher with whom she team-taught. “She really helped me develop techniques that enabled me to reach a variety of students,” Bohatch said.

That collaborative teacher “reinforced the idea that all students can learn. We just have to figure out how to provide methods that would enhance their individual growth,” Bohatch said in a previous interview.

Bohatch earned a bachelor’s degree in education at Kent State University and a master’s degree in education at the University of Akron. She also has taught at Shore Junior High School in Mentor, Ohio and Bob Jones High School.

Her husband Rob Bohatch works with Continental Roofing. Their daughter Emily works as a breaking-news reporter and data journalist for “The State Newspaper” in Columbia, S.C. Their daughter Katie will be a sophomore this fall at Auburn University.
