Joe Estevez

Critical Minds' founder, Joseph Estevez (Joe), is an active science teacher. Joe is passionate about assisting students and motivating them to be excellent. He has little tolerance for the 'status quo' and is ready to change the direction of secondary science education in the United States one person at a time. 

Throughout Joe's career as an educator, it has become obvious to him that science research could be conducted by students of all ability levels, however some of the best had one thing in common. The great ones were those who were wired with a critical mind
