Teis love and passion for positively affecting the lives of all young people, as well as the adults who influence them, comes through in all she does. She inspires and motivates people toward action in order to change or improve their lives, their communities and their worlds. Tei Street oversees the Health Science community based partnership of the OSU Colleges and OSU Wexner Medical Centers at all East Side Schools: East High School, Champion Middle School, Eastgate Elementary School, Trevitt Elementary School, Ohio Elementary School, and Beatty Park are designated Health Science Academies.
She helps to make sure every student participates in a school wide, health science related activity and curriculum. This includes field trips, connecting them to mentorship, recruiting scientists and doctors, working with parents and assisting educators in their classrooms. Tei also writes grants and works to provide supplies, resources and STEM related equipment to fill critical gaps in courses and schools.
Tei Street works with the Science Cafe, which is attended up to three times a year by a selected group of students who visit a community partner for a hands-on experience where they are engaged in learning about a career in the health sciences by a professional from that field. In past science cafe sessions, students have learned from veterinarians, dentists, laboratory researchers, obstetricians, nurses, physical therapists, pathologists and more. Her tireless effort has resulted in continuous growth of the academies and a continued increase in participation and cohort development.
